After completing an educational orientation program, annual Paddle Pass holders will be able to launch their own canoes and kayaks on the Wisconsin River using the parking lot and established shoreline access points at Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center. A Paddle Pass is also your connection to community paddling events and land stewardship volunteer opportunities in the Upper Dells.
Passholders are required to check in and out through the main office like all other visitors during business hours. For access outside of business hours, paddlers should contact Upham Woods at least 24 hours in advance of their visit. Weekends, mornings, and evenings can likely be accommodated with appropriate advance notice. We will work with paddlers to meet their needs.
* Note: This program does not provide access to Blackhawk Island or hiking. The pass cannot be used commercially in any way whatsoever.
LOCATION: Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center
FEE: $5, payable by check at orientation or credit card after registration
