We're adventurers just like you. We love the pull of a river's current as we paddle. We're okay hopping into a canoe in the rain and paddling to a secluded campsite with the perfect view of the world. We're totally comfortable off grid. We love sharing adventure with friends. A campfire on the water's edge. The plaintive cry of a loon echoing across the lake. The magic in a winding path. Watching the swirl of water behind a paddle's stroke. Knowing that, no matter what, the world will wait until we get back from our adventure. Read our story.

Grab a paddle! With water trails mapped for all ages and abilities, River's Edge is the perfect base from which to launch your exploration of the Manitowish River, Turtle Flambeau Flowage, Manitowish Chain O Lakes, or really any of the water trails in the area. You bring the spirit of adventure, we'll provide the kayaks, canoes, rafts, and tubes. River trips available in varying lengths and intensities.

If your idea of fun is a spin on the Manitowish Waters paved multi-use trail, taking a turn on local off-road trail systems, or snowshoeing through our winter wonderland, River's Edge has the gear to get you outside.

Located strategically on the Manitowish River, River's Edge is uniquely positioned to support multi-day expeditions on the 14,000+ acre Turtle Flambeau Flowage and other area waterways. We can provide outfitting and provisioning for groups and individuals, including dry boxes, cooking and camping gear, and food to fuel your adventure.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
