There is nothing more pleasurable than floating a river. Canoe and kayak with us on one of central Wisconsin’s finest rivers. The Mecan,
known for its great trout fishing, is a fantastic river to paddle. The current is lively and the clear sparkling water will entice you.

The course of the Mecan is a bird watchers and photographer’s heaven. In the heart of the sandhill crane nesting area, you will be surrounded by many different species of birds, as well as deer, beaver, muskrats and other animals.

Paddle the Fox, a larger river rich in the history of the fur trading era. It was the major link for fur traders from the Great Lakes to the Mississippi. It is one of the few rivers in the nation that flows north.
