Paddle the Flambeau River in Price and Rusk Counties

The Story of the Mighty Flambeau

  Down through the Northwoods and through history, the Flambeau flows for 150 miles to its confluence with the Chippewa.

  For centuries untold, Native Americans hunted, fished and journeyed down the Flambeau’s winding course. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the river became a highway to fur traders carrying pelts out of the forests of the north. And in the 19th and 20th centuries, the Flambeau was one of the great Wisconsin rivers that helped to build the nation, carrying the white pine logs downstream to the mills of America.

  Today, the Flambeau is a piece of history, a riverway that flows down through the millennia—a shining example of the beauty of the Northwoods. To paddle the Flambeau is to journey down one of the great waterways of North America and to experience your place in the history of the Northwoods.
