Several groups of paddlers around northeast Wisconsin enjoy these social paddles on a weekly basis. Please contact us with corrections or additions to this list. Arrive early enough to unload and be ready to paddle by the listed launch times. These are not official NEWP events; but are frequented by many of our members and both experienced paddlers and certified instructors.
Red River (whitewater) – Tuesdays 5:15pm
Red River – The 2022 weekly Red River Paddles will begin April 11, 2023. Meet at the Lower Lake Dam at 5:15 pm on Tuesday. Please let Ken Braband ([email protected]) know if you plan on coming. Active from paddling season opener and into October each year, weather dependent.
Lake Michigan – Wednesdays 5:30pm
For 2023, we will be alternating locations (a bit).
- If the day of the month is even, we will launch from Neshotah Park (south end of the beach) in Two Rivers. Think “Two Rivers” starts with “two”, which is even.
- If the day of the month is odd, we will launch from Selner Beach in Kewaunee. Think “Kewaunee” rhymes with “three”, which is odd.
Contact Scott Thomson for details.
This year’s first paddle will be Wednesday, June 7 in Kewaunee. Weather permitting.
Ready to launch by 5:30 Wednesdays
Oshkosh Area – Tuesdays 5:30 PM
Weekly river paddles are scheduled on Tuesdays from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Check out the Facebook group “FLOW Tuesday Paddles” and ask to join this group. These begin at 5:30 and usually last two to three hours, with food and beverages to follow. Occasional workout, high intensity paddles are available to get in shape for Midwest races (kayak, canoe, SUP). Contact Dale at [email protected] for more information. For you competitive folks there is an annual race on the third Saturday of August each year, ending in Omro.
