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 to the Holcombe Flowage. Along its upper reaches, the eighteen miles from the Turtle Dam to Park Falls are rated Intermediate to Expert with many Class I & II rapids. The southern sections also provide the challenge of rapids and whitewater. The most traveled stretch is from Nine Mile Creek to Ladysmith. There are campsites and landings along the way in the Flambeau River State Forest. The Upper Flambeau above Nine Mile Creek and the stretch below Ladysmith to its junction with the Chippewa are also canoeable. The South Fork is not regulated by dams and is 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 and at canoe campsites along the North Fork.
