North Bend Canoe Rental has been sending people down the Black River for 40 years. Our mission is to foster a deep love for Wisconsin's Driftless Area. We hope to provide opportunity for adventures to be had and memories to be made. North Bend Canoe Rental and Shuttle Service is the only canoe outfitter located directly on the Lower Black River. We shuttle paddlers to their preferred launch point, allowing them to canoe down the river to their parked vehicle. Located just 30 miles from La Crosse and 20 miles from Black River Falls, we are a short drive for hours of outdoor fun within the Coulee Region. If you already have your own gear, great! We also work with canoers and kayakers to setup personalized shuttle services to make their trip more convenient.
When you get off the river you can enjoy the view and a beverage or ice cream cone on our beautiful patio overlooking the river. This option is even better for those who can't commit to a whole day on the river but want to enjoy the beauty of the Black River.
