The Perfect Paddle on the Wisconsin River
Taking a relaxing paddle on the lower Wisconsin River is one of our favorite things to do in the summer around Spring Green, WI. The Lower Wisconsin State Riverway and the river itself is less than 20 minutes from our Bed and Breakfast, too, which makes it a great place to stay and play! This portion of the Wisconsin River is known to have the highest concentration of sandbars. It’s also pretty wide and gentle, which really makes it a great place to kayak or canoe.
The area also happens to be exceptionally beautiful! It’s a pretty undeveloped stretch of the river, which means you’ll be immersed in nature and feeling relaxed throughout your entire journey. Moreover, there’s plenty of space to spread out on the river, which means you can carry on with social distancing while you’re out there. As you paddle along the river, make sure to look for plenty of wildlife. The area is home to a number of turtles, eagles, and other bird species.
Here is a great guide to all of the great things you’ll see along the Lower Wisconsin River. You’re welcome to head out on the Wisconsin River on your own if you bring your canoes or kayaks to our Inn. If you do this, a great place to start is near Tower Hill State Park, at Peck’s Landing. If you’d rather be guided down the river, you have some options. The Wisconsin Canoe Company offers great day trips between Arena and Spring Green, which is truly one of the most beautiful portions of the river. The Wisconsin Riverside Resort also offers tubing options.
More Kayaking and Canoeing in the Area
There’s also some great kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding that can be enjoyed at nearby Governor Dodge State Park. There, you’ll find two lakes, Cox Hollow and Twin Valley. Both lakes have boat ramps to launch from, and you can also rent both rowboats and canoes directly from the park.
Devil’s Lake State Park in Baraboo isn’t that far from our Inn, either, and offers exceptional canoeing and kayaking opportunities in the park. If you do head up that way, we recommend extending your visit to do some hiking in the park so you can absorb as much of the exceptional beauty as possible. It’s one of the most popular Wisconsin State Parks for a reason! You’re also pretty close to Mirror Lake State Park up there, which of course offers wonderful opportunities for paddling on the lake.
