Dodge County offers several excellent paddling opportunities. Horicon Marsh offers winding channels, open water and expansive wetlands to explore. Canoe and kayak rentals are available in the City of Horicon.
The gentle current you’ll find on the Rock and Crawfish rivers make them ideal for paddling. One of the most popular launches is Harnischfeger Park on the Rock River. Paddlers can travel upstream for 17 miles to Hustisford or downstream 25 miles to Watertown. Astico Park is a favorite launching point for paddling excursions on the scenic Crawfish River.
The Rock River Trail was established in 2010 to promote recreational use of all 320 miles of the Rock River. Preservation, restoration & appreciation of the natural & historic attributes of the Rock River are the goal of this non-profit organization.
