Boatel House Boat Rentals

BOATELS is located in McGregor, Iowa, across the Mississippi River from Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, in the heart of the Upper Mississippi River bluff country. In this area one can find a combination of scenery and history unsurpassed anywhere in the Midwest.

The Mississippi River's beauty gives visitors the same breathtaking panorama beheld by Farther Marquette and Louis Jolliet, the first white men to discover the "Father of Waters" three centuries ago; Mark Twain, whose visions were filled with romance of the Mississippi River.

The rich, historical lore on the exploits and daring of the men who made the Northwest; an ever-changing panorama of colorful bluffs and rock formations carved by wind and water; wooded, green islands; and water confluences continue to fascinate and challenge the exploring boater or photographer, the casual visitor or learned traveler.

The spectacular beauty of the Mississippi River valley remains as it was from the beginning of time. We are the largest scenic pool with back waters to explore and there are 32 miles that our customers can venture out in.

If you are looking for a different kind of fun on the scenic Upper Mississippi River, then BOATELS has exactly what you need!
