Wisconsin is a paddler’s paradise with thousands of lakes & rivers to choose from. Here in central Wisconsin, Devil’s Lake is popular not only for its natural beauty, but because power boats are not a concern. Once outside of state park, paddlers need to share the waterways, but what wonderful waterways! Below we’ve listed the most popular paddling destinations within a few miles of Devil’s Lake State Park.
Paddling The Baraboo River – At one time the Baraboo River was blocked by 4 dams. Today they have been all removed making the Baraboo river one of the longest stretches of open river in the country.
Paddling The Upper Dells of the Wisconsin River – Amazing beauty best viewed by paddlers during the off-season when it’s safe for small human-powered craft.
Paddling The Lower Wisconsin River – Kick off in Sauk-Prairie just 15 minutes south of the park, and paddle your way to the Mississippi!
Mirror Lake – Mirror Lake is located near Wisconsin Dells, in Mirror Lake State Park. Lots of wildlife, dark forests, sandstone cliffs, and a strict no-wake policy make Mirror Lake a wonder to explore by canoe or kayak.
