The lake is 9 miles end to end, and between 1 and 3 miles wide. Over 90% of the water comes from the rain and is very clear. You can see the bottom at 20 feet when calm. The reason it is so clean is because of the ratio of surface area to runoff. Lake Geneva it is 4:2, most lakes in Wisconsin the ratio is 40 to 60:1, like Lake Delavan or Lake Como, yuck!
The spring kayaking season is roaring down the White River outside Lake Geneva this year, with the resent heavy rains, the river is really ripping. The launching place most of the local kayaks take off from is on Sheridan Springs Road in the Township of Lyons. Going north on Sheridan Springs Road outside of Lake Geneva from Edwards Boulevard the first two bridges are where most locals launch from.
Today we went kayaking on Lake Geneva at dawn with a happy dog on board. Yes, you read that right. Bing loves kayaking as much as I do, and she is always eager to hop on the boat and enjoy the scenery. She even has his own life jacket and goggles, which make him look super cute and cool.
We paddled around the lake for about an hour, stopping occasionally to admire the birds, the fish, and the flowers. Bing was very curious and attentive, sniffing the air and wagging her tail. She also liked to splash her paws in the water and bark at the ducks. She was having a blast, and so was I.
Kayaking with a dog is not only fun, but also good for bonding. It helps us to communicate better, trust each other more, and have a shared experience. Bing is not just a pet, she is my best friend and partner in crime. We always have fun together, no matter what we do.
If you have a dog and a kayak, I highly recommend you to try this activity. It will make you both happy and healthy. Just make sure you have the proper equipment and safety measures, and respect the wildlife and the environment. And don’t forget to take lots of pictures and videos to capture the memories.
Enjoy adventures with Bing and me on Lake Geneva at dawn because after 8 a.m. the lake gets crowded with boats and jet skis. And trust me, you don’t want to smell their exhaust fumes or get splashed by their wakes.
