Paddling in the Madison Area
Paddling is very popular in the Madison area. There are numerous easy put-in points and rentals are increasing. Paddlesports include any human-powered craft: canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards (SUP), and various rowboats.
However, paddlers are often difficult to see by power boaters. It doesn't take much of a wake to upset a paddlecraft. Always wear your lifejackets - once you are in the water, you've got other things to worry about than getting your lifejacket on!
