There are several public access points which allow one to canoe, kayak or motor boat on the river. Fishing or sight seeing is recommended.

The Flambeau River combined the canoe experience of the Boundary Waters with a white water raft trip. We started our trip on 4th of July and for a holiday weekend it was not that busy. Our trip started from Flambeau Adventures and dropped us just below the dam for the 29 mile trip. All 3 days required a lot of... More

A favorite river of the aboriginal peoples, the river is clean and sweet-smelling. The chance of seeing ducks, bear, otter, deer, turtles and fish. Pack a lunch. Inquire about pickup and dropoff when you are directed to a place to rent a canoe. Day trip. Overnight on the river next year. Start a fire at the waters edge and fish... More

A very nice river to canoe. North Fork is slow paced and the South Fork offers some nice rapids.

My wife and I traveled here last summer with our boat and I must say that we did not know the river that well and we did have concerns about hitting rocks, trees, and stumps, that we saw around the river. It was a nice ride and we would do it again. As with any we body of water that... More
