The Manitowish River takes its time getting to the Mississippi today as much as it did in the days of tribal migration, fur trade, timber and prohibition. Its see-to-the-bottom waters meander through ancient forests and past histories of the people in the Northwoods. A day on this river is a trip back in time and a journey through history.
The Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area is wilderness. It's 40,000+ acres of game trails, islands, inlets and bays. It's the domain of the wolf, bear, bobcat, otter and loon. It's the kind of magical place that allows you to escape whatever your daily life is and connect with something simpler. Take your time, the world will await your return.
