Turtle-Flambeau Flowage Weekend (Susan/Jerry)
Thursday, September 7, 2017 to Sunday, September 10, 2017
Turtle-Flambeau Flowage South
Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area
"Slip your boat into the water, take it out far enough to lose sight of the landing and look around, you're treated to a view of nature - of wild beauty and all its splendor. Tall stands of pine and birch crowd the shoreline, a pair of loons dive in a quiet bay, and high overhead, a bald eagle circles.
This view will remain. The rugged Turtle-Flambeau Flowage will not fall victim to fragmented development along its shores. The scenic beauty and wild character will be preserved for future generations to enjoy."
It's been called Wisconsin's "Boundary Waters Light." It's big enough for you to try your compass navigation skills, but without the portages. The entire eastern half of the flowage is a quiet no-wake area with no shoreline development, but throughout the flowage, the shallow water and occasional stumps keep the crazy power-boaters away ;)
Camping is free and first-come-first-served for the small family sites, but if there are more than 6 registrants, we'll reserve a group site for up to 15 people at $40/night. This additional cost will be divided among the total number of registrants, regardless of when you arrive. (So come for all three nights!)
