About The Event

Event Info

Kayaking is a great way to experience the beauty of nature up close, so we selected one of the most scenic parts of the Wisconsin River for this 3-day trip. We'll head downriver from Prairie du Sac, paddling leisurely through what is considered one of the top kayaking destinations in the Midwest due to the abundance of wildlife and great camping options. This long, dam-free stretch of the river is home to deer, otters, beavers, turtles, sandhill cranes, eagles, herons, and hawks. After paddling 4-5 hours on Saturday and Sunday, we'll settle in on sandbar islands to camp both nights, relive our day and fall asleep to the sounds of nature. On Monday, we will paddle to our takeout. We invite beginner and more experienced kayakers to join us for a memorable lower Wisconsin getaway.

Need to leave on Sunday? We can arrange a shuttle back to your car!
