Go on an adventurous self guided expedition that will allow you to get in touch with nature through a canoe paddle on the Wisconsin River. This local operator will put you and your canoe in at your launch location after checking in at the Sauk City central offices. After a safety briefing and adventure instruction, you will be brought to the starting drop location on the Wisconsin River. Enjoy your leisurely paddle down the river to your destination and make sure to stop on the way, this self guided adventure can take multiple days.
Please be Aware: There's a nude beach seven miles into your trip that is located across from Ferry Bluff and is river left. You will be ticketed by the DNR if you stop at the beach by watercraft on a weekday. You may stop at the nude beach via watercraft if it is a weekend. There is no camping one mile up and one mile down river from the beach, period. There are usually small yellow signs posted on sandbars that are within the two mile stretch, but not necessarily visible due to vegetation or pranksters. You could be ticketed and will be asked to pull your camp and move on by the DNR regardless of the time of day/night. If you stay river right when you near Ferry Bluff you'll most likely glide right by the beach and not even realize it's there. This local operator sends around 3,000 people past the beach every year and have had no issues, but if you're looking to avoid the nude beach all together please consider pulling out at the Mazomaniee boat landing or paddling out of our Boscobel location (can be arranged after booking).
Your local tour operator will stay in touch with you while on the river and accommodate you rarrival time as best as possible. It is highly encouraged you to bring an extra set of keys for your vehicle, while you're on the river they will move your car from Sauk City 60 miles down river to Boscobel. At the conclusion of your trip they'll pick you up at Wyalusing Beach and shuttle you 31 miles up river to Boscobel and your car.
