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.
