Waterway and wetland permits: recreation

Recreation activities can be as diverse as the people who participate in them. It is no surprise that new ways of enjoying Wisconsin’s lakes and rivers are continually being revealed.

Permit activities

Recreational boating through the use of power boats, sail boats or larger boats may focus on the thrill of going from one place to another. But recreation can involve other sports activities as well, such as fishing, swimming or waterskiing.

Water recreation is one of the most carried out activities in our state. There is nothing quite like a day spent together on the water that allows families the chance to reconnect with the natural resources of Wisconsin.
