We rented two kayaks from Wisconsin River Outings in Sauk City. The paddle was fun and the stretch of the river to Arena was beautiful. Every aspect of the trip was well thought out and addressed by the staff. The app from WI River Outings made it easy to find our take-out location. We will definitely be back next year!

Eight men on a wonderful late summer day. We would have rated our trip 5 but that is not your fault. We were looking forward it skinny dipping at Mazo Beach. What is the DNR thinking.

This was the second canoe camping trip my wife and I took through WRO, and it was just as terrific as our first. There had been substantial rain prior to our scheduled launch date, and WRO recommended launching farther up river to ensure we would have a sand bar to camp on. It worked out perfectly; we had pleasant canoeing... More

We had a terrific 2-day trip with WI River Outings. The river level was high, making sandbars scarce, so the team figured out an alternate route the that would give us the best opportunity to find a sandbar to camp on. And if we hadn't changed our route, we likely wouldn't have seen five bald eagles near the turn at... More

Have gone canoeing twice with River Outings on Wisconsin river as father-son team with his high school. Very organized and well-equipped company. Staff have great knowledge of the river, have gone on it severally and gave helpful tips for a successful canoe trip. They have a great sense of humor too. Nice river in which you can choose to have... More

Over the Labor Day weekend, we had 11 people that rented from Wisconsin River Outings out of Sauk City, WI. We made reservations 1 week before the trip, but had to change the number of single kayaks, the number of tandem kayaks, and the number of personal kayak transports. We had 3 changes in addition to the original order and... More

This was our fist canoeing experience and it was GREAT!!!! We didn't encounter any hassles during the trip and preparation for the trip was made easy with the helpful tip emails. We were already talking about our next trip before our first one was finished!!! Highly recommend WRO for an awesome canoeing experience :)!!!

We had a lot of fun tubing, in spite of the winds. Our teenage boys enjoyed pulling the rest of us along and everyone enjoyed the waves and sandbar. The young man who was at our launch point was awesome - really kind and helpful. Our only negative experience with one of the staff members ~ there is an elderly... More
