Canoeing and Cedar Creek

The Town of Cedarburg is fortunate to have beautiful Cedar Creek traversing its limits. In order to make enjoyment of this amenity more accessible, the Town has installed landings at several locations including Creekside Park (located on Cedar Creek Road about 1/4 mile west of Horns Corners Road), Cedar Creek Farms Canoe Launch (located off of Robin Court), and Krohn Park (located at the intersection of Pleasant Valley Road and Covered Bridge Road). Canoeing can be most fun in spring, but also dangerous. Experienced paddlers avoid streams that are flowing over their banks (flood stage). Online resources providing information letting paddlers know if the Creek is safe, or too low for paddling include Treasures of Oz.

The greatest danger to paddling in fast-moving water is downed trees, because if caught by one, the current can be push a person underwater and drown you even when wearing a life jacket. When a tree completely blocks a stream, a paddler is forced to either go over the tree or carry their boat on shore, which can prove dangerous. The owners of property along streams are responsible for the removal of their downed trees. If you own stream property and are not able to remove a downed tree in your portion of the stream, contact Town Hall for assitance (377-4509).

When the water and air temperatures added together equal less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, hypothermia is a serious concern. If a paddler becomes wet in these conditions, they should change into dry clothes as soon as possible. Paddlers can bring a change of clothing and a towel in a "dry bag" which will keep its contents dry even if submerged. You can buy one at sports equipment stores or online. Well-seasoned paddlers wear their life jacket when paddling. Persons age 16 and younger are required by law to wear a life jacket. Those over age 16 must have one in the boat.
