Getting on the River
River City Kayaks (123 S. Main St.; 608.687.8158) rents kayaks and a canoe, but you are responsible for your own transportation; call to arrange a rental.
Rent a canoe and explore the backwaters via the signed water trail at Merrick State Park (608.687.4936).

Book sales don’t fully cover my costs, and I don’t have deep corporate pockets bankrolling my work. I’m a freelance writer bringing you stories about life along the Mississippi River. I need your help to keep this going. Every dollar you contribute makes it possible for me to continue sharing stories about America’s Greatest River!
