30 min storm but otherwise perfect!
It was a really fun trip. They make it so easy to do a little sandbar getaway! Would do it again. And totally recommend.

Wisconsin Dells River Canoe camping
Such an awesome experience, and probably one of the best ways to explore Wisconsin! We loved being able to canoe the Wisconsin River at our leisure and choose the best sandbar we could find to set up camp. Walked in not too sure how things would go, but Rick and Elizabeth were very responsive and accommodating for us. Rick is a great guy and we really enjoyed our time spent with him as he drove us up the river to start our canoe journey. Then, the next morning we had a short canoe trip back to where we parked and could leave as soon as we got there. Honestly can’t recommend enough - such a cool way to explore the Wisconsin Dells and hope we can make it back!

Great trip, Great Bach. Party 10/10
It was such a cool experience canoeing and camping on a sandbar! Every guest had a fantastic time and we were blessed with great weather as well! It was a smashing success of a Bachelor Party and we definitely will be coming back sometime!

Amazing Canoe Trip!
AWESOME TRIP! We did this for a 30th birthday and everyone had an amazing time! It was also nice to do something outside of our usual backpacking. The hosts were fantastic! They were very friendly, responsive, and genuinely cared about our experience. They are also local so they were able to give us some ideas on things we could do along the way as well. You are in the sun a lot. Expect zero natural shade from sun up to sun down. I highly suggest 3x the amount of sunscreen you usually bring. Also, water shoes, sandals, etc. I was too stubborn to put mine on the first day and I got burned on the bottoms of my feet from the sand. Great trip! See you next year Elizabeth and Rick!

Beautiful, Relaxing Sandbar Camping
My friends and I (group of 4) had an absolute blast with Elizabeth's sandbar camping. She was quick to respond and very informative about the area and the river itself. It was a beautiful trip, easy to find campsites, and all the equipment was in top shape. I absolutely recommend this trip for anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away.

I am conflicted about writing a review for the best camping experience ever - because one of the best things about it was COMPLETE PRIVACY! We went mid week and we were soooo amazed to see no one else the entire time! Rick and Elizabeth thought of everything - best left the best part adventure to us. We will do this again. We feel rejuvenated and calm. Nature at its best. We have so much gratitude for this opportunity.
