WRO is the best choice for canoe and kayak rentals as well as transportation services. I have canoed with them for 2 years now and recommend them to everyone I know!!!

“Great trip from Boscobel to Wyalusing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

We've done this trip twice with WI River Outings as an overnighter, and had a great experience both times. The stretch from Boscobel to Wyalusing is beautiful and quiet - for nearly the entire trip the shoreline is forest and hills and little else. We saw many bald eagles, but hardly any other boaters. In other words, it feels like a genuine wilderness experience.

WI River Outings is friendly and professional. They got us on the water quickly and were waiting for us when we arrived at Wyalusing. We liked their canoes, as well. Recommended!

“Sauk City location = outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

My family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids ages 15 and 11) went canoeing down the WI River yesterday with WI River Outings, the Sauk City location. Christine in the office was fantastic. In retrospect, we should probably have not embarked on the paddle with high wind warning for the afternoon, which Christine told us about, as it did actualize. As a result, we had a bit of an unusual experience and they went above and beyond the call to keep us safe on the river and to have a positive experience. We'll be back, as WI River Outings knows how to make a customer for life! They have outstanding canoes, not the typical metal ones most outfitters provide, and a wonderful staff. Every person we interacted with was primarily concerned with 2 things. Keeping you safe on the river and making sure you had a great experience.

Give paddling a try, canoeing or kayaking, and feel good about choosing WI River Outings. They have two locations for putting in on the WI River, Boscobel and Sauk City.
