Bohemian Flats, which is part of Mississippi Gorge Regional Park, sits just around a river bend along the West bank of the Mississippi River. Waves of thriving immigrant communities called Bohemian Flats home years ago. Pay parking at the site is available. The park features a launching off point for public river cruises and private charters, a picnic area, restrooms, and walking trails. The Paddle Share station is located at the north end of the park by a sandy beach along the river.
This station is roundtrip only and provides either a 5 mile (3 hour) or 7 mile (5 hour) trip route. There is no return station due to the locks along this stretch of the river. All rentals must start and end at the Bohemian Flats Paddle Share station. The recommended turnaround point is either the railroad bridge (5 miles) or the sandy beach below the Lake Street Bridge (7 miles). Please allow extra time to paddle back upstream.
