Paddle Pass Program

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.  It is recommended that paddlers contact Upham Woods at least 24 hours in advance of their visit to ensure that this service will be available.  Weekends, mornings, and evenings can likely be accommodated with appropriate advance notice.
