The Flambeau River is known as one of the best whitewater rivers in the Midwest. The North Fork provides the most stable water flow, traversing five Wisconsin counties as it falls from the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage to the Holcombe Flowage. The southern sections also provide the challenge of rapids and whitewater and is not regulated by dams to provide the best run in the spring or following heavy rains. Access is available at landings, road crossings, impoundments and old logging roads. Outfitters are available to rent and shuttle canoes & kayaks and provide guide service. Camping is available at Hines Park, Smith Lake County Park & Campground and at canoe campsites along the North Fork.
