Boasting top-tier paddling rivers, ideal for canoeing and kayaking year-round. From tranquil streams to wild and scenic routes.

Canoeing / Kayaking / Boating

Monroe County has some of the finest paddling rivers.  Enjoy the wildlife and scenery on the beautiful La Crosse River.  The river depth is acceptable for canoeing & kayaking all summer.  Many streams are calm and perfect for newcomers, yet wild and scenic enough for the experienced canoeist.
