The owner/boat driver knows more about the marsh than you could ever want to know. It's a nice little boat ride that gives you a different perspective than walking on the trails. Our trip was sold out even on a weekday.

Decided to come up and rent kayaks on a warm Sept day. Wonderful people who ran the shop. Reasonable price. We ended up being the only people on the marsh. Just let the wind take us around most of the time.

For years, as we travelled as a family north on vacation, we passed by signs that signaled the Horicon Marsh Preserve. Recently, I saw a special deal for a very old, cool hotel in Mayville, Wisconsin, just a short distance from Horicon. We decided to...More
