Patience, Please.

We’re so glad to see you again!

But our devotion to your experience is stronger than ever.
Thanks for your increased patience, kindness & understanding.


Paddle to the Point

800 Langdon St.
Madison, WI 53706

Peruse Madison’s largest lake with a peaceful paddle to the Picnic Point, on Lakeshore Nature Preserve. Learn about America’s most-studied lake from a student guide, and discover what life is like for them on campus.


Choose your own vessel for exploration. A kayak or canoe provides a traditional experience for all skill levels. Test your balance with a stand up paddleboard, or choose cooperative adventure with the SUPsquatch – and eight-person stand-up paddleboard.


Head back to shore for a Wisconsin Union Adventures guidebook and a gift card to explore more of the Memorial Union and Union South.


Let the lakes be your guide! Paddling available daily by request.
