Baraboo River Canoeing and Kayaking
Our new season starts on Saturday May 15th, 2021.
We proudly use Old Town Canoes & Kayaks and would like to add that each boat is power washed and each life preserver is hand washed & sanitized after EACH rental.
Scenic Canoe & Kayak Trips
Baraboo River Canoe & Kayak Rentals offers a variety of scenic Wisconsin canoe trips along the Baraboo River Corridor, at the base of the Baraboo Bluff Range. Enjoy a leisurely float through the beautiful countryside, or experience an exciting but enjoyable canoe trip through the rapids that flow right through the city of Baraboo!
We re-open Saturday the 15th of May 2021.
- 9am - 5pm
There will be departures each hour. Pick up times are scheduled upon departure. The last Baraboo river canoeing and kayaking group goes out at 3PM. The last pick-up is scheduled at 5PM. Later pick-up times & special canoe & kayak group trip accommodations are available upon request. Any shuttles after 5PM will incur a fee.
Best Canoeing and Kayaking in Wisconsin
In 2002, the final dam on the Baraboo River was removed, making it the longest free-flowing river in the nation to be restored to its pre-settlement condition.
Because the Baraboo river is the only undammed river in the state, it is the best place for paddling in Wisconsin.
Since first opening in 2017 we have been able to meet people from all over the U.S. and from all over the world, and we are thankful for each visitor we have had the opportunity to accommodate!
We are open seasonally.
