Kickapoo River Tube, Kayak & Canoe Rental

Drifty's Canoe Rental-Celebrating our 30th summer in 2023!



Come and experience nature with a canoe or kayak trip down the beautiful Kickapoo River with Drifty's Canoe Rental. The famous Kickapoo River offers unmatched scenery of Wisconsin's driftless region. It is a very safe, slow moving river that can be enjoyed by a beginners as well as experienced canoe enthusiasts. The river follows a meandering, winding path through the rock bluffs of Wildcat Mountain State Park and the Kickapoo Valley Reserve, with plenty of places to stop for a picnic, swimming or exploring. 


Celebrating our 30th year with Ronald McDonald Charities

Driftys is partnering with Ronald McDonald Charities of Madison as we celebrate our 30th year of offering trips on the Kickapoo River. RMHC is also celebrating 30 years of offering families a place to stay while caring for loved ones. RMHC has come into our lives recently and we are announcing that this summer, $1 of every canoe, kayak or tube rented at Driftys will be donated to RMHC of Madison to help other families in their time of need. Come enjoy a day on the Kickapoo and help a great organization at the same time.



Make sure to call ahead to get the latest rental pricing for canoes, kayaks and tube rentals. Reservations are recommended as we do tend to book out ahead of time for many days in the summer. There is no deposit required, just what day and time you would like us to save you the equipment. We take reservations by phone at 608-337-4288 or 608-487-3379.
