The below maps show various portions of the Wisconsin River. 你可以放大看更多细节. The Red squares depict dams or impasses.
The town of Lyndon has a public boat landing on the Wisconsin River accessed from Highway N at the end of 60th Street which requests a donation for use. Louis Bluff is the large highland just upstream of River Bay Marina. The bluff was named after the Frenchman Louis Dopless who settled here in 1846. The high wooded prominence is fronted by beautiful cliffs along the river.
Traveling further down river from the River Bay Marina on the Wisconsin River paddlers experience the extremes of a lake-widening of the river and a long narrow rocky gorge. Downstream from River Bay on the right are the Palisades, towering rock formations eroded by wind and water. They signal the beginning of the Upper Dells. In this section of the Upper Dells the Wisconsin River can be extremely dangerous at high water and should never be paddled by inexperienced boaters at any water level. Big tour boats and other motorized craft oftentimes create hazardous wakes in the last four miles of this section. In "the Jaws" the river is 120 feet deep! 正因为如此, during the height of the tourism season thousands of people view this part of the Dells from large motor launches and other fast boats. For most people the best way to see the Dells is from a tour boat obtained in Wisconsin Dells. For experienced paddlers a good time to try this route is at dawn well before the tour boats get started.
For skilled paddlers, the trip through the Upper Dells is quite a remarkable experience. Quite a bit of the land along both sides of the river is owned by the Department of Natural 资源 so that the rugged grandeur of the Dells has been preserved in a natural state. Natural wonders in this river portion include Witches' Glen, 汽船的岩石, 冷水峡谷, 巨人之盾(在水线处), 魔鬼肘, 黑鹰简介, 和烟囱岩. One option could be put in at the pull-off alongside County N near the head of Black Hawk Island. From this point you can paddle a route around the island and back again to avoid a shuttle or as an alternative, paddlers could continue down river into Wisconsin Dells to the municipal boat landing.
