The last part of the trip is pretty much slow moving and flat water that attracts tubers. There is a big eagle's nest in the last part of the trip before getting back to the campground.
We decided on the six hour trip from Attica WI to Camp Sweet Minihaha Campground in Brodhead, WI. You have to really work on problem solving skills to get through the felled trees. The campground does a great job of making it a family orientated trip for all experience levels and canoes the river at least twice a week to ensure that even though clear paths are there, it is not dangerous to anyone.
There are lots of places to stop and like I said, very popular. If you want to be the only ones on the river, you wont be. If you want to take little ones with you or break in newbies...this is your place. The river is shallow and slow moving. The scenery is lovely and the nature preserve is beautiful.
You have your choice of a 1.5 hour. Put in at Albany (which I saw several children with their parents) a 3 hour at County Rd EE or a 6 hour trip from Attica (which is the most beautiful part of the trip)
