We rented canoes from Blackhawk River Runs in Mazomania and paddled downstream to camp on a sandy island four hours later. Loved that spot: the Milky Way, no mosquitos, fish jumping, quiet. The next day we floated and paddled all day, stopping at Bob's Resort for lunch. Lots of people fishing, kayaking, sunbathing. We camped 24 miles downstream on a sandbar inhabited by sandhill cranes. The next day we had a peaceful morning of paddling and bird watching and took out at Mascoda where we had a picnic at the city park and waited for Blackhawk to transport us back to our cars. A lovely weekend.

Be careful with the current. A great place to hang with the family for the day. Many people rent tubes or boats to go down the river

I grew up on the Wisconsin River. Fishing, camping, Eagle and wildlife watching, you have it all. Very beautiful late winter.

Great location. Lots to see and do. Head to Sauk City Harley and ask how to get to Leland and the Schellter. Best fish and breed anywhere

The river is even fun when launching the boat in the slush!
