Paddling is fun in Waupaca with both flat water or moving water for the ultimate paddling adventure. The Chain O’ Lake has 22 interconnected lakes with crystal clear spring fed waters. The Chain’s marl bottom gives many of the lakes a distinctive bluegreen coloration not found in many other bodies of water in Wisconsin. The Crystal River is narrow, winding and scenic with crystal clear water for both a relaxing paddle and a little adventure with rapids.
The Innkeepers favorite route is about a 3 hour paddle and starts in Marl Lake (we provide complimentary transportation and a map of the route), explore clear small lakes and streams that lead to the Chain O’ Lakes. Long Lake flows into the mouth of the Crystal River. You’re paddle will bring you right back to the Crystal River Inn.
