Paddle the Flambeau
Welcome to the Flambeau River, the best paddle in all of Northern Wisconsin. Price and Rusk Counties are home to the majority of the mighty Flambeau's course. As the Flambeau passes through these counties, the river shows an amazing array of moods, from whitewater to slow, gentle curves and pools. There is a stretch for every paddler, young and old, beginner or expert.
Be sure to check back often for up-to-date river conditions for both the North and South Forks of the Flambeau.
This site contains everything you need to know to begin your Flambeau River adventure. We've broken the Flambeau River up into 13 smaller trips on the North and South Forks of the river, each with its own map and paddling information. You can also use this site to plan all the aspects of your trip, from lodging and dining to canoe rentals and guide services. We've also included some interesting attractions you'll want to check out while you're in Price and Rusk Counties.
No person may possess glass bottles within the Flambeau River State Forest boundary at Little Falls-Slough Gundy scenic area or within watercraft launched or removed from designated launching sites on the Flambeau River.
