Thread: Wisconsin River

    Wisconsin River

    Anyone jet ski here?

    I was thinking about loading the pwc with some camping gear and setting up on the sand bars. Is it full of weeds? Anything better for boat camping in Wisconsin?

    Thanks!

    The Wisconsin River can be some awesome riding when the water level is up. When the water is at normal or low levels it can be very hard to navigate with out getting stuck (learned the hard way)
    On the positive side the WR is very scenic, not crowded, and many sandbars to camp on.
    My advise would be to start on the Mississippi and ride up the Wisconsin as far as possible. Having a depth finder is a huge advantage!

    I would go on the river near the Dells. I plan to take that ride this year.

    If any of you guys make this run - and use a GPS - I'd really like to get some of your trails added to my site (in sig below). I have nothing in my database from your area. Thanks for the consideration.

    Two easy and obvious ways, if you have the gear: A GPS Unit (Garmin handheld for example...). Or, even more simpler, a Smartphone. You may need to google what apps are available. Personally, I use my Garmin 76, but I do know there is "MyTracks" for droids...

    Again, thanks for the consideration.
