Travel through the pristine wetland areas on a three-, four-, or five-day trip into the Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area
. Most treks begin on the Bear River, just north of the Flowage. While paddling downstream, look for the wide variety of wildlife native to the area including nesting eagles, osprey, beavers, and sand hill cranes. You’ll camp in the primitive sites throughout the Flambeau Flowage. Created in 1926 by the damming of the Flambeau River, the Flowage is filled with islands and coves. The Flambeau is most famous for its walleye fishing, but Northern pike, muskellunge, bass, sturgeon, catfish, bluegill, and other game fish also abound. If you want an additional challenge, the last day of your trip can be filled with an exciting paddle down the North Fork of the Flambeau River. This stretch of the river has almost a dozen sets of Class I & II rapids. NOTE: This can be a strenuous trip with at least 5 to 6 hours of paddling per day.
Group sizes: Groups up to 17 can be accommodated depending on campsite availability. Smaller groups have more options for campsites.
Trips offered: 3 or 4 days
