Big Canoeing on Little Lake Butte des Morts

Are you excited to start the spring paddling season? We sure are after this long, cold winter. We’ve been dreaming of all the fun places to paddle when the water starts melting.

One of our favorite paddling destinations in the Fox Cities is Little Lake Butte des Morts. Little Lake Butte des Morts is a nature immersion right in the heart of the Fox Cities.  The Fox River flows through this 1000 acre lake in the middle of homes and industry.  There are beautiful natural places to explore right on the edge of the city.

Nature Current loves taking people out in our voyageur canoe on Little Lake Butte des Morts to enjoy our urban wilderness. What does a paddle on the lake look like? Here are a few photos from a boy scout outing we took last fall.

We started at Lutz Park and paddled up to and through the Strobe Marsh into Mud Creek.
