START OF TRIP: You can start anywhere along the White River you choose. Popular choice is to start from the Grand Geneva bridge on Sheridan Springs Road and ends back at Riverview Park in Lyons. You would put a chaser vehicle at the Riverview Park. This trip can take approximately 2-3 hrs depending on the water levels and how many times you stop to swim.
If your not experienced in rapids or maneuvering, feel free to start at The Grand Geneva-Sheridan Springs Road and get out at the White River County Park before the rapids or the bridge before the county park. (limited parking) This trip is approx. 1-2hrs. This would be a great run for beginners. This portion of river has no rapids.
HELPFUL TIPS: PADDLE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
-Please be respectful of the river, parks, and one another.
-Float at your own risk! Don't paddle too close to allow for maneuvering on corners. Allow social distancing at your own risk.
-Life vests are to be aboard any watercraft by Wisconsin state law.
-Glass containers are not permitted on river or at our parks & launches.
-No Littering- there are garbage cans at all launch spots
* Please take all garbage with you when you leave the river!
-dry bags and coolers should be secured to the vessel at all times
-Rule of thumb: If you don't want your belongings wet, lost, or broken don't bring them or have a dry storage bag that secures to yourself or your kayak/canoe.
EVERYONE HAVE FUN, ENJOY AND MAKE GREAT LASTING MEMORIES!
