Juneau County Area Water Sport Adventures
Before you plan any adventure we highly suggest you be prepared. Rivers and streams
can be at flood stage, can have downed trees, sand bars,rocks or trees hidden under
water. You may need to portage in some instances. There are places of very deep
waters, as much as 120 feet, places of lower levels only a few inches in depth.
There are no rapids along these particular routes but rapid moving water may occur.
Have proper clothing and gear along for any circumstance that may occur. Always wear
your flotation devices. Sun screen, insect spray and water are important essentials.
Check weather conditions. Be vigilant of other boat traffic and wakes that may occur.
Let someone know where you intend to embark on your adventure and when and where you
intend to arrive at your destination.
Wisconsin River History
Southwestern Juneau and surrounding counties are nestled in Wisconsin's Driftless region. The region's distinctive terrain is due to its having been bypassed by the last continental glacier. The term “driftless” indicates a lack of glacial drift, the deposits of silt, gravel, and rock that retreating glaciers leave behind. This unique area is home to thousands of acres of Wisconsin cranberry marshes. Just north of Juneau County the World's Largest Cranberry Fest is held in Warrens, Wisconsin.
