Rented a canoe for 3 days from Seeley to Trego and these folks were terrific. Although, we would recommend putting in at Hayward Dam and skipping the 2 portages that are between Seeley and Hayward since the river has lots of houses still at that...More

While tubing the Namekagon River is very relaxing, Jacks Canoe Rental also will deliver paddleboards to surrounding area lakes. That's great for cabin people that don't bring boats but have kids who want to do something new.

Great time! How can you not have fun tubing down the river! River travels at nice pace. Shallow enough my 8 year old could stand up in most parts of river. Friendly and helpful staff. We'll run operation.

Both times are very nice. The end of the season is great because of the color change of the leaves. The water levels are typically good for both.

Yes, the Namekagon River flows at around 3mph, making it a good start for beginners. Slower moving water to Class I rapids can be found on most sections. Big Bend to Trego would be a good starting trip.
