UPPER FOX PADDLES MAY 16-17: Berlin to Omro; Omro to County Landing
This trip will convince you that the Fox is a beautiful river, in stretches. Much more rural than what you’re used to seeing in the Fox Cities, the river embraces cow pastures, hay fields and swamps. For those of you who were with us the last time we rounded Terrell’s Island, we promise to use a compass this time.

LAUNCH: 9:30AM Miller Park, Omro
LUNCH: After paddle
LAND: Butte des Morts boat landing, Leonard Point Road.
