Here in Wisconsin, we know the great outdoors. We’ve got every sporting activity you can think of, plus some! But let’s go back to the basics – river tubing! River tubing is a much loved past time in Wisconsin, and we certainly have the rivers for it. If you have your own tubes – great! Our Wisconsin summer SUV rentals will offer the space to transport them. If not, there are plenty of places that offer rentals.
Whether you’re new to Wisconsin or tubing or just looking for a fresh spot, we’ve outlined a few of the best rivers to which you can bring your Wisconsin summer SUV rentals.
Whether you’re looking for a lazy river kind of day or fast and furious, Wolf River has it all. Downstream you’ll find a quiet, relaxing current. This is also particularly good for families with small children who may be frightened of the faster currents. Upstream near Langlade County, the river is on a much more dramatic slope. Dropping a whopping 430 feet over 28 miles of river, the current will definitely bring you on an adventure.
Two spots along the way offer tubing rentals. Bob & Joni’s Rafting & Tubing in White Lake offers 5-6 and 2-3 hour rentals. We’d recommend reservations for their business, as it gets quite busy in the summer.
Wolf River Trips & Campground in New London provides both camping facilities and tubing, canoeing, and kayak trips up river. Campgrounds have tent and RV sites and amenities including a shower, laundry, bar and grill, tennis and volleyball courts, playground and game room for the kids, boat landing, shuttle service, pavilion, and a dump station. So don’t forget to pack a tent in your Wisconsin summer SUV rentals.
Wisconsin River and Manitowish River
Are you hoping to spot some wildlife on the waters? Then check out Wisconsin and Manitowish Rivers. Here you’re guaranteed to see a few loons lazily swimming along. Go early enough in the morning, and the peace and quiet will offer a perfect amount of silence to enhance the beautiful sound of their songs. You’re also likely to see eagles flying up above as you lounge on your tube.
Hawks Nest Canoe Outfitters in Manitowish Waters offers rentals and a shuttle. Rentals include tubing, canoe camping, canoeing, rafting, fishing trips, outfitting, kayaking, and guides.
Sugar River is as sweet as its name. The river runs south of Madison, with gentle currents that provide beautiful views of forests and rolling farmlands. It’s a fantastic way to take in some of the landscape while keeping cool in the waters.
Two outfitters can help you out. Sweet Minnihaha in Brodhead and Crazy Horse Campground, also in Brodhead, are two family-oriented campgrounds and rental spots from which you can push off into the river. With everything from canoes and kayaks and fishing, they’ll fulfill any type of outdoor need.
If you’re yearning for a stunning vista and spots to relax, the check out Wisconsin River. The shores are studded with forests and the Lower Wisconsin River is surrounded by rock formations thrusting up from the earth. Sandbars and islands are not uncommon on this river, offering great places for a picnic or little dip.
Point Bluff Resort in Wisconsin Dells and Wisconsin Riverside Resort in Spring Green offer spots to camp up. Or, perhaps more appropriately, “glamp” up. Both of these resorts are full of amenities including all your basics, but with delightful food, dancing, and entertainment as well. If you’re looking for cabin stays, these are the spots for you.
Begin on the tubing trip of a lifetime! Reserve your Wisconsin summer SUV rentals from Mayfair to gain the space and the convenience you need to fully enjoy your trip.
