    "AWFUL. This was my 6th time taking this sandbar camp trip and first time using Blackhawk River Runs. Do not give thanks to Blackhawk River Run for the beautiful scenery, they just provide the canoes and pick up times. There are other great companies on the river that we're more useful. Reason 1-We had only 2 scheduled pick up times to choose from. Other companies wait and pick you promptly when you're finished. What happens if there's a storm? You're 15-21 miles out on a river. Not many people can gage how long it will take them to paddle 10-21 miles. It's not fun being rushed or waiting for a ride. Reason 2-I'm from Chicago and no one informed us we cannot clamp a small 5mph motor on the canoe, to my surprise it's unlawful unless it's registered. Instead of telling us or even giving a warning we were threatened it would be confiscated. It was an uncomfortable experience. Reason 3- When we arrived at the destination on Sunday, we were the only customers, there were 3 people working this canoe shop sitting down and I wasn't acknowledged for about 15 minutes while one woman was on the phone. There are other options of canoe companies on the river, I've used Wisconsin canoe co in the past and I've never had an issue. This is a wonderful trip to take, just make sure you don't use this company. No need to be on a time limit or deal with unfriendly people."

    "I have been going to this location for over 15 yrs. The first thing I want to say is Great Family, from day one they treated me and my guest like family, which is why I'M so devoted to this location. great equipment, beautiful scenery and several locations to land and camp out. I'm a bit selfish that I've never posted comments in earlier years but i wanted to keep it a secret so it wound t get over populated but the Jensen"s deserve a thank you from me after all the great years of service. Thank you, have fun and God bless all. The Rosa Family from Chicago IL."

We went canoeing (via Blackhawk River Runs!) today. We packed a cooler, got outfitted by Jensen’s and took off. Beautiful weather, plenty of nature, stopped at a sandbar or two… perfect. Another beautiful summer morning in Sauk Prairie….
