Beginners, Families with Young Children
For those just getting started paddling, or with small children, or maybe looking for a shorter day, we can meet you at the Community Park in Belleville, WI where the park accesses Lake Belle View. Here there is “flat”, or still water, and generally easy going. The park also offers playground equipment, bathrooms, swimming, basketball, and fishing. We can meet you at the boat landing located directly across the drive from the large gravel parking lot near the entry. We are happy to give some basic instruction, but this is not an instructional class. We can only meet at this location at 2pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Holidays. This service must be reserved in advance, we do not plan to meet unless a reservation is made. Cost for a 3 person Canoe is $40, a single person kayak is $20 each. All equipment will be picked up at 4:30pm.

Have your own equipment? Need a ride up the river to your put in? Sugar River Outfitters offers One Way Shuttle Service!

We can drop you off at the Valley Road access point using the same schedule as our rental customers. Simply drop your boat(s) at the Valley Road access point, then drive down to Paoli to catch the shuttle back to Valley Road. This service is $10 per person.
