Planning your Trip:

Paddling with the current will move you at about 3 miles per hour. Floating and stopping on sandbars should be considered when planning a river trip. The canoes, tubes or kayaks that you rent are yours for the day if you go up river. You have until dusk to return back to Wisconsin Riverside Resort.

The boat landing at Wisconsin Riverside Resort is our own private landing located on our premises. Depending on the river levels smaller river boats can be put it at our location with permission. When river levels are low plan on using our landing for canoes, tubes and kayaks only. The landing is located 1 mile downriver from Peck's Landing (Hwy 23). After going under the Hwy 23 bridge stay on the right hand side of the river. We are the first buildings that you will see after the Hwy 23 bridge.
