Wisconsin Canoeing & Kayaking Vacations – Paddle Lake Superior, Brule River, White River & Namakagon River
Explore 23,161 Acres of Water, 966 Lakes, 400 Miles of Streams
Paddling is a great way to explore the waters of Northern Wisconsin. Delta Lodge sits on the shore of crystal clear Lake Everett. A boat pier on your cabin’s lakeshore is shared by two cabins. A boat for your exclusive use is docked at this pier on Lake Everett.
We keep additional boats on Delta Lake for cabin guests to share. There are kayaks, canoe and paddleboat for everyone to share. The kayaks are especially popular as they make it possible to explore the lake individually.
Paddling Apostle Islands/Lake Superior Sea Kayaking
The resort is only a short drive from the south shore of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Sea kayaking has become very popular way to travel among the Apostle Islands. Meyers Beach is a popular spot to begin a tour to the mainland sea caves. Meyers Beach Road, off Highway 13 about 5 miles east of Cornucopia, offers lake access and a trailhead.
We encourage paddlers new to Lake Superior to contact Lost Creek Adventures for sea kayak expeditions, rentals, and workshops.
Canoeing the Brule River
Whether you are in the mood for a peaceful float with the family or the challenge of an exciting ride through whitewater, the Bois Brule River in northern Wisconsin can meet your expectations. The Bois Brule River offers easy-going trips on the upper river, particularly from Stones Bridge to Winneboujou, that nearly anyone can handle. More adventurous folks can stay on the river another 45 minutes and experience Little Joe Rapids, a modest class II rapids located just upstream of the Bois Brule Canoe Landing. Still more daring canoeists, and most kayakers, prefer the river north of Pine Tree Landing to the Highway 13 Landing. This stretch of river will take paddlers through nearly continuous stretches of riffles, ledges and rapids. Canoe and kayak rentals and shuttles available in Brule, Wisconsin.
Kayaking/Canoeing Wisconsin’s White River
Meandering, narrow, fast, rocky, and wild, these are commonly used words when describing the float down the White River. Canoers and kayakers will discover a remote river with long stretches of class 1 and 2 rapids and boulder gardens, and almost no development after the first two miles. There are canoe rentals and shuttles available including through Bear Country in Drummond, Wisconsin.
Namekagon River Canoe & Paddleboard Trips
The Namekagon River is one of Wisconsin’s premier, flatwater, canoeing and kayaking rivers. From Lake Namakagon near Cable, Wisconsin, the river starts out as a small cold-water trout stream, then meanders, narrow and intimate, through a varied landscape of northern lowland forest, bog-and-fen, and open marsh. Below Hayward, the river rushes through several low hazard whitewater rips between narrow, wooded banks. Numerous islands populate the river. Occasionally the river settles into a lake environment, wide and slow, through open wetlands where birdlife is abundant. Namekagon River canoe and kayak rentals are available in Cable, WI with Bear Country Rentals and in Hayward, WI.
