My review is based on my love for the Wisconsin River and canoeing it's lower section from Sauk Praire to Wyalusing along the mississippi convergence.
Typically the Wisconsin River is a canoeing river which many sections can be traveled in day trips or overnight trips. Over night trips can be done by camping on the many sandbars throughout the river. Caution is advised to look up the river height on the USGS Web site at Muscoda to ensure the river is not too high to hide the island paradise of sand bars. Typically a gage height below 3' is best.
Attractions include bald eagles, goose, cranes, herons, king fisher and many other birds which migrate along the Mississippi river.
Plenty of other wild life can be seen too like deer, racoons, and turtles of all species.
Best of all, canoeing the lower Wisconsin River can be a delightful experience to get away to enjoy the peacefulness the wilderness has to offer. Also, the entire river has a sanding bottom with no muddy shore lines. Clean fun to be had by all. Even my kids enjoy the sandbars to swim off from and to builld sand castles in. Caution is advise to watch the river currents as they can be strong and shift sandbars unexpectedly.
My favorite section is from Muscoda, WI to the Woodman Landing. Bluffs and rock out crops left over by the glaciers is outstanding.
Enjoy. I know I will until the snow flies!
