popular items include pontoon boats, canoes and kayaks, as well as
fishing poles and other fishing-related equipment. The newest items for

rental. These, and other select items, are available only to authorized
military and civilian Department of Defense personnel for off-post

authorized personnel off of Fort McCoy is encouraged to reserve the
items,” Rynes said. “The items can be reserved using WebTrac or by

The checkout center currently has a wide variety of summer items
available for use, with rates generally calculated on a daily basis.
