Camp, Bike, and Paddle in the Driftless Area of southwest Wisconsin (near Winona), where 382 miles of paved rolling backroads yearn to be ridden. Camp at Merrick State Park on the Mississippi River. Arcadia Boiler Dairy Days is a small town festival near our campground, which will provide optional entertainment opportunities throughout the weekend. Food will be on your own and pot luck for Sunday dinner. Also nearby is Fountain City (River Bluff Capital of the World!)
Saturday: Memorial Bike Tour. Four route options range from 10 to 60+ miles. Registration at 8:00 AM, Ride Starts at 9:00 AM
Sunday: Paddle the quiet river backwater sloughs of the Mississippi, directly from our campsite.
Monday: Bike another backroad loop on our own, or those interested in paddling more can explore the quiet waters of the nearby Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge, or hike at one of the nearby state parks.
