Ride the River with Hawks Nest Outfitters!

Leave your worries behind as you paddle or drift down the upper Wisconsin River this summer. Hawks Nest Outfitters, located on Highway 70 West, between Eagle River and St. Germain, is ready to help you embark on your adventure. Hawks Nest stocks float tubes, canoes, and kayaks, as well as life vests, paddles, and everything else you’ll need for a great day on the water.

“We handle the rest, including all transportation needs from our site. Whether you are looking for a more relaxed ride in a tube, or a more vigorous workout with a canoe or kayak, we have you covered!” says Scott Henderson, owner of Hawks Nest Outfitters.

Hawks Nest accommodates single- and multiple-day rentals for singles, couples, families, as well as special events—“whether it be a fundraiser, team building event, birthday party, corporate events, or youth group,” Scott adds.

They carry comfortable Tube Pro river tubes. The single rider tube has a backrest, floor and two rider support handles. Their 17-foot canoes are Alumacraft QT-17C Quenico—durable and great at handling all that the Wisconsin River can throw at them.

Hawks Nest carries multiple types of kayaks, depending on your needs. There are Old Town Vapor 10 sit-in kayaks, Ocean Kayak Malibu 9.5 sit-on-top kayaks, and Ocean Kayak Prowler Big Game Angler II for all your fishing needs! There are also Old Town Loon 160T tandem kayaks, which are perfect for those with young children or two people who want to stick together.

Keep your eye out for sightings of wildlife including eagles, loons, ospreys, and along the way. Excellent fishing is also found on the Wisconsin.

They will have strict social distancing and sterilization measures in place to keep everyone safe and healthy.
