LOCATION DETAILS





ALGOMA WILDERNESS, CANADA



Algoma Wilderness, Ontario Canada
This is a great adventure into a 6,000,000 acre wilderness in the great north woods. The Central Algoma Railroad penetrates deep into this roadless area. You will be dropped off at a mile marker along the railraod track in the middle of virgin timber and crystal clear lakes. Until you return to that mile marker, you are virtually stranded. We have canoed along the Montreal River and also the Lake Oba regions on two separate trips.

ANIMAS RIVER, COLORADO


Animas River, Colorado
This is a whitewater river that flows through Durango, Colorado. Enjoy an exciting adventure in this beautiful part of Colorado. It is a whitewater experience that can range in difficulty depending on the water level and the section of river you choose. Several professional outfitters are available.

ARKANSAS RIVER, COLORADO


Arkansas River, Colorado
What an amazing river. At 1,469 miles (2,364 km), the Arkansas River is the sixth longest river in the United States, the second-longest tributary in the Mississippi-Missouri system, and the 45th longest river in the world. Its origin is in the Rocky Mountains is in Lake County, Colorado, near Leadville.

As a whitewater river, it flows through places like Royal Gorge, Bighorn Canyon and Brown's Canyon. It's common for many Scouts to enjoy an exciting whitewater adventure on the Arkansas while on their way to Philmont. We loved it. Several professional outfitters are available.

BLACK RIVER, WISCONSIN


Black River, Wisconsin
This is a river in Wisconsin that provides a remote flavor. We have paddled directly under a bald eagle perched on a tree branch above. The river has a concentration of tannic acid which gives the water a dark color. One nuisance is not seeing submerged rocks in advance before your canoes hits them.

While the upper portion is considered too rocky for navigation, canoeing is popular on the central stretch through Jackson and Clark counties. From Hall's Creek Landing, 13.5 miles north of Black River Falls, the river flows through quiet forests to a landing above the dam at Black River Falls. Below the dam, put in at the landing on First Street and enjoy a gorgeous 30-mile ride to New Amsterdam. Canoe rentals are readily available along the route. The current is slow and access is available at road crossings.

BOUNDARY WATERS, MINNESOTA



Boundary Waters Canoe Area
This is by far one of the most beautiful flatwater canoe areas in the world, one of the ultimate destinations for those who love wilderness paddling. The more strenuous portages you endure, the farther from people you become.

Glass smooth lakes reflecting an azure sunset, a relaxing day of fishing, the call of loons at night, this is truly a paradise to cherish. We have been to Boundary Waters several times and it continues to be one of our favorite canoeing destinations. Most trips have been based from Ely, but some trips have also been based from Sawbill.

CURRENT RIVER, MISSOURI


Current River is a beautiful area within the Ozark mountains of Missouri. One of the unique things about the Current river is it's source, a series of springs flowing millions of gallons each day. The river is very clean and clear. There are small rapids and riffles to keep your paddling interesting.

We have paddled from Akers Ferry to Owl's Bend. Many groups like to take out at Pulltite instead. The Current River is a part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.

DUPAGE RIVER, ILLINOIS


We like to do a canoe trip on the lower section of the DuPage River. We put in just below the dam at Hammel Woods Forest Preserve on State Route 59 near Shorewood, Illinois. From here we canoe approximately 12 miles to the dam at Channahon State Park in Channahon, Illinois. There are several playful riffle areas along this route. You will also pass through a gravel pit which provides an excellent fishing location. Beware of the dam at Channahon. Take out on the left side. It is a short portage to the parking lot in the park. Spring is the best time for paddling the DuPage.

KISHWAUKEE RIVER, ILLINOIS


We have canoed 60 miles of the Kishwaukee river from DeKalb, Illinois to it's confluence with the Rock river south of Rockford, Illinois. For people looking for a nice afternoon of paddling I would suggest trips #1, #2, & #3. For more of a challenge try #4, #5 or the ultimate #6.

  • Trip #1 Put in at the Route 64 bridge west of Sycamore, Illinois. Paddle to North Grove Road. This is an easy afternoon. You can extend it to Base Line Road and take out at Knute Olsen Forest Preserve.

  • Trip #2 Put in at Knute Olsen Forest Preserve and take out at Kingston Park near the Five Points Road Bridge.

  • Trip #3 For a pleasant float try putting in at Kingston Park, and taking out at the low iron bridge in Potawatomie Woods forest preserve. This trip is very nice and easy with banks mostly wooded. Shortly after the take out at Potawatomie Woods the river splits into small channels with swift current and many log jams. That's a section of the river better to avoid, that's #4.

  • Trip #4 A section you might want to avoid is putting in at Potawatomie Woods forest preserve and taking out at MacQueen Forest Preserve. One interesting point along the early part of this route is a small pond excavated on the left (south) bank of the river. The pond originally served as a canoeing area for Kishwaukee Scout Reservation, a former Boy Scout camp built in the early 1970's. Shortly after that point the river splits into small channels with swift current and many log jams. We call this portion of the river "the gauntlet".

  • Trip #5 If you want the supreme challenge for a day trip, try this one. Put in at Hopkins Park in DeKalb, and take out at MacQueen Forest Preserve. You are guaranteed at least two portages and many long hours of paddling. Do it in the spring when the water is sufficient and there's some current. We have done this, and it makes for a very long day!

  • Trip #6 We call this our "Iron Man Canoe Trip". Put in at Hopkins Park in DeKalb, take out under the I-288 bridge on the Mississippi river on the Iowa side. This is 8 long days of paddling. Average day is 25 miles. Five major dams on the Rock river to portage. Watch out for speedboats and jet skiers above the dams. Stay clear of the underwater intakes for the Byron Nuclear Power Plant. We do this trip with full gear. We do visit a few restaurants at towns along the way for a special treat.



  • Return to Troop 33 Locations



    KYTE RIVER, ILLINOIS


    This is a small river in Ogle County Illinois and runs about 32 miles from an area near Rochelle, Illinois to the Rock River. It can only be paddled during certain times for good water level. We have paddled a couple small sections.
    The first section is entering the river at Skare Park on Flag Road. Paddling north it winds through the Adventure Scout Ranch for about 2 miles, then past rural landscape. We take out at Chana Road. It makes for a nice float of a couple hours.
    Another section we've paddled is Chana Road to the Rock River. The Kyte flows into the Rock River at Daysville, Illinois. Take out is at Castle Rock State Park along the Rock River. A 235 acre area near Daysville Road is known as the Kyte River Bottoms and is registered as a Land and Water Reserve with the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission. It contains some seasonal ponds in the spring and supports a rich variety of wildlife.

    LAKE SHABBONA, ILLINOIS


    Located in DeKalb County, Lake Shabbona consists of 1,550 acres of rolling prairie with a 318.8 acre man-made fishing lake. Shabbona Lake State Recreation Area provides a convenient, natural haven from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

    It's best to paddle toward the source of the lake, away from the big water, into an area where motors are prohibited, to its source, Indian Creek. It is much quieter with more abundant wildlife. Lake Shabbona becomes a great paddling option when area rivers are at dangerous water levels.

    Return to Troop 33 Locations



    LITTLE MIAMI RIVER


    The Little Miami River is a tributary of the Ohio River located east of Cincinnati, It is a National Scenic River popular for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. There are many riffles and minor rapids that make floating the river fun and exciting. Several canoe liveries along the river offer rentals. Smallmouth bass fishing is among the best in the state. The water quality is excellent. A wide variety of wildlife can be seen along the river.

    A series of state and county parks and bike trails have been built along the river, the Little Miami Scenic Trail, which is concurrent with the Buckeye Trail and Little Miami Scenic State Park. Most trails were built along abandoned rail grades. The Ohio to Erie Trail project, under construction, aims to link these trails to other trails statewide to create a single bike trail from Lake Erie to the Ohio River.

    Visiting the Little Miami River can include a float trip, fishing, biking, camping, and nearby tourist sites including Cincinnati, Kings Island, USAF Museum, and the Wright Brothers Historic Site. We've enjoyed kayaking the river near historic Waynesville and camping at Caesar Lake State Park near Wilmington.

    MISSISSIPPI RIVER


    From Lake Itasca in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi River is the fourth longest river in the world reaching 2,350 miles in length. We've canoe sections of the mighty Mississippi in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Illinois.

    The river has many long sections of high traffic which gives the water a collection of wakes from other boats for paddlers to contend with. Besides a powerful current, another hazard can be large barges. Safe distance from them is a must. For good paddling there are many backwater channel areas that provide wildlife habitat, seclusion, and protection from boat traffic and strong currents. The Mississippi is one of the greatest rivers in the world.

    OKEEFENOKEE SWAMP, GEORGIA


    Okeefenokee Swamp in Georgia is a totally unique canoeing experience. We start at Stephen C. Foster State Park in Georgia. You can canoe to a place called "Billy's Lake", a short distance from the canoe rental and a great place to stalk alligators. One day we saw 12 gators. There is also a great variety of birds to enjoy.

    If you are really looking for adventure, paddle down the canals to overnight campsites built on wooden platforms deep within the swamp. Just wait until dark. The sounds of a swamp at night will be lasting memories! Advance reservations are required for overnight visits within the swamp. Contact Stephen C. Foster State Park at 912/637-5274. You can also access through Laura S. Walker State Park from the east; that number is 912/287-4900. Both locations have canoe rental available.

    WISCONSIN RIVER, WISCONSIN


    (click here for canoe rental information)

    The WISCONSIN RIVER is a great for canoeing; wide, slow moving current, with great sand banks, sand bars, and islands for camping, plus convenient canoe launches. Takeouts are maintained by the state of Wisconsin and have parking lots and porta-potties. If wilderness camping is not for you, there are several campgrounds operated along the river. You can spend a day, a weekend, or a week canoeing on the lower Wisconsin River. The following sections range from County Highway Z north of Wisconsin Dells all the way to the Mississippi river, 168 miles of paddling enjoyment.


    County Z to Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin -- 15 miles
    There is a canoe rental and campground north of the bridge. Plenty of islands early on. As you go farther south beware of the large tour boats that can swamp you with their wake. It's fun to explore the small side canyons, but remember the tour boats often explore them too.

    Wisconsin Dells to Portage, Wisconsin -- 21 miles
    Early on you encounter ducks (large military types--not feathered) and also many pontoon and small pleasure craft. As you get nearer to Portage the tourist horde are left behind.
    Portage to Sauk City, Wisconsin -- 27 miles
    You cross a major lake area on this section, I avoid canoeing it. Watch for strong winds and boat traffic.

    Sauk City to Spring Green, Wisconsin -- 22 miles
    This is one of the most popular stetches for canoeing so obviously it's also the most crowded. If you're looking for wilderness solitude, bypass this stretch. This part of the river is crowded with canoes, major partying, a nudist beach, with reports of a nearby island sometimes inhabited by nudists. This can be embarassing if you canoe with young children or Scouts.
    You can avoid the nudist beach by putting in at the town of Arena, which is downstream of the nudist beach. From Arena to Spring Green is about 10 miles.

    Spring Green to Muscoda Wisconsin -- 22 miles
    This is less crowded and a very beautiful stretch of river. If you don't want to canoe the full 22 miles, you can take out early at Lone Rock.

    Muscoda to Boscobel, Wisconsin -- 15 miles
    Another wonderful section of river for camping along generous sand banks. The river is wide and slow. Just blocks from the take out in Boscobel is an A&W Restaurant with frosted mugs waiting to be filled with root beer. It always tastes great at the end of a long days paddle.

    Boscobel to Wauzeka, Wisconsin -- 11 miles
    This is a nice day trip. We usually make a weekend trip from Boscobel to Wyalusing, Wisconsin. The river is less sandy here than upstream. There are less sand bars and sandy banks to camp on.
    Wauzeka to Prairie du Chein, Wisconsin -- 25 miles
    The banks become less sandy as you get closer to the Mississippi river, so good campsites along the river are more scarce.
    Prairie du Chein to Wyalusing, Wisconsin -- 8 miles
    If you want to brave the mighty Mississippi, you can continue south for another 8 miles to a public beach near the small town of Wyalusing, Wisconsin. (It makes for a great take-out because you can swim in the Mississipppi river) Remember you are paddling on a powerful river with a great deal of recreational and commercial traffic. The barges aren't too bad, though they are huge and intimidating, just keep a safe distance away and you'll be fine. It's the pleasure craft you must watch out for, they are not always observant, and beware their wakes. Also beware of the wing dams below the surface, they can create some interesting currents depending on the water level of the river.
