Your best friend is getting married and you’re in charge of the party, what do you do? Strippers aren’t it and mostly you just want a chance to get together with everyone you haven’t seen in a while. Sitting around the campfire out on your own sandbar with an ample supply of beer and a clear view of the night sky might be an option.
Bachelor parties (and to a lesser extent, bachelorette parties) are a common occurence on the lower Wisconsin. It’s a great opportunity to bring all of the old friends back together for a weekend away from technology and just hang out. Canoes are plenty big enough to bring along a keg or a few cases of beer (make sure there’s no glass – that’s a $739 fine) along with enough firewood to keep the fire going strong into the night. Camping on any of the hundreds of sandbars is free and doesn’t require a permit. Best of all, aside from a few sporadic houses, the river is completely undeveloped so there’s no one to bother with your antics.
