Crawfish – in/out Aztalan State Park

Flow at gauge on Crawfish River at Milford 05426000: 400 cfs (median ~400 cfs) We made a note in the margin of Paddling Southern Wisconsin not to do this river when flow is <310 cfs.

Put-in/take-out: Plenty of parking and bathrooms at the park. Park sticker or daily fee required. You have to carry your boat down a long sloping grassy field to the shoreline put in.  We paddled upstream with a stiff tailwind for approx 1.5 hrs (~1.3 miles) to the I 94 bridge. Then downstream against a headwind back to the put in, which took approx one-half hour.

Wildlife: Deb saw a fox near the takeout!

Note: on 5/26/2007, we did the Aztalan to Jefferson paddle with G&S.
