Trip Preparation/COVID-19

Pre-trip planning and Covid-19

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Brule River Canoe Rental, Inc. is enacting the following operating procedures to slow the spread of the virus and to stay within legal and recommended guidelines.

  1. Wearing a mask

We do not require masks at this time. (Updated 2021)

  1. Office Procedure

We recommend reservations and payments to be made on-line @ www.reservations.brulerivercanoerental.com or call for info and large group orders @ 715-372-4983. All in store merchandise and accessories can be purchased on the day of, at our retail counter. Payments on-line are fully refundable anytime before the departure time and date. Refunds will only be refunded over the phone or face-to-face due to security.   

  1. Shuttle Procedure

We will be reverting back to transporting customers in OUR vans and busses in the 2021 Season (as we have done from 1962-2019). If you are uncomfortable with this method, please call for alternative logistical methods.

    4. What Trip do we take?

98% of our customers choose between A1, A2, B1 and D2 trips. If you have taken these trips in the past or are looking to discover a 2 or 3 day adventure, look at our C1, F1. 

Adventure seekers will discover the challenging class III rapids of our D2 trip a blast, but other group members may not. Research online or call to suggestions on which trip is best for you and your group. This will ensure all group members involved will have a fine experience on the Brule.

    5. Be prepared on the River

A. If you prefer to bring your own pfd/life jacket instead of using our floatation devices, you are more than welcome.

B. It’s Wisconsin! Be prepared for hot or cool, bugs and sun. We offer dry bags, bug spray and waterproof phone cases at Amazon like prices. Our zip code is 54820.
