Meandering through natural wetlands and native prairies on its way to the Mississippi River, the La Crosse River provides the canoe enthusiast with 15-1/2 miles of scenic beauty from Sparta to Rockland. This spring-fed river allows for ample water supply year around. The presence of an abundance of wildlife contributes to this enjoyable two-hour excursion. The official canoe landing in Sparta is located across from Fisherman's Park; a County landing is located east of Rockland at Sixth Drive. Further west, the 13 miles from the West Salem Dam to Riverside Park in La Crosse travels through tall pine stands, small rapids and the La Crosse River Marsh. Access sites include two county landings and Veterans Memorial Park. Rental canoes are available in the area.
