Kayak and camp weekend on the MKE river

May 31 @ 5:00 pm - June 1 @ 4:00 pm

Small guided trip down the Milwaukee river, outside Newberg, Wi. tree lined shoreline, a gentile river on a warm summer day

Join us as we do a couple of awesome experiences in one weekend. We will be tent camping at Waubedonia Park on both Friday and Saturday nights, and paddling on both Saturday and Sunday on the Milwaukee river. These segments of the river have woodlands, farm fields, small homesteads, scattered small islands, and wildlife along the way. There are a few riffles in some spots to liven up the gentile flow of the current. This is normally a very quiet segment of the Milwaukee river and perfect for one to bond with nature. There is no motor boat traffic on this stretch.

What’s the game plan?

Friday afternoon- Meet at Waubedonia Park, set up your tent in the reserved camping area (sites have been paid for). The evening meal will be on your own – we will be happy to provide some great local ideas to grab some food. Camp fire chat in the evening as we overlook the river in front of us and toast up some s’mores and get to know each other.

Saturday morning – Wake up, morning breakfast on your own. Head up to our launch area, get a safety brief before getting on the water and go paddling down river. This will be about a 12 mile paddle down river to our camp spot at Waubedonia Park. Pack for a lunch – as we will take a break on the river.

Saturday evening – Silent Wake will provide the evening meal (chicken breast, veggies, bread, and fruit). Relax and share stories of the day around the camp fire.

Sunday morning – Wake up, Silent Wake will provide breakfast (Hot ham and rolls with doughnuts – from the local bakery as well as fruit). Pack up your camp site. Bring shuttle vehicles to take out and return back to camp site to launch. Paddle down river to takeout location, which is about 13 miles down river. Pack for a lunch – as we will take a break on the river.
