Kayak the Rock River-Avoid Motorboats

  • Aug 14, 2010 · 9:00 AM

Hello Fellow Kayakers;

Explore the Rock River while avoiding the wake from motor boats. We will meet in Ft. Atkinson on Business 26 across from Smith Motors at the boat landing. The plan is to paddle up to the dam in Jefferson and then back downstream to Lake Koshkonong, ending where we put in in Ft. Atkinson.

This is going to be a fairly easy paddle unless we have wind to contend with. At the conclusion of the trip, we can have a picnic lunch at Centennial Park. I will bring a grill and those who wish can pick up items to grill or eat at the Sentry Grocery Store right near our initial launch.

This is a great opportunity to explore the Rock River while not traveling too far from Madison. Hope to see you there. More details to follow for those who sign up.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you

    I need to work up to this length of trip! Thanks for the offering, though.

    I'm not sure if I can to attend, this is my backyard, just a couple suggestions. The paddle up to Jefferson is 6 miles, up and back 12, if you continue down to Lake Koshkonong your adding another 6-8 takeing out at the closest boat landing to the lake. Centennial Park is a dog exercise park I don't believe there is a picnic shelter. Dorthy Carnes county park just west of Fort Atkinson off hwy 12, has a beautiful shelter and a nice deck the town of Jefferson built overlooking Rose Lake.
