Canoeing & Kayaking

Paddle. Drift. Float. Enjoy.

Explore wild and beautiful waters

Rusk County is a paddler's paradise. This county, with its four major rivers and numerous lakes and flowages, is a place to explore. Rusk County's diverse waters set it apart from other Northwoods destinations, and there's something for every paddler. Adventurous paddlers can run stretches of churning rapids. New paddlers and families with kids will find plenty of quiet water to float. Long-haul paddlers can find many great multi-day trips with camping spots along the way. There are places to put in all over the county, so you're never far from your next adventure.
