Float on the Wisconsin River at Camp Rest Park

Rate this Adventure

Added by Natalie F

Relax on the water where the Wisconsin River intersects Lake Wisconsin.

If you come on a weekend expect there to be a crowd, but there is plenty of space for everyone.  You can hang out on the shore, float in the water on an inflatable floatie, kayak, canoe, or spread out on one of the many sand bars close by.  Depending on the time of year and level of the water, you can even walk to the closest sand bar without getting wet past your waist.  Bring a cooler and spend the day!
