Gile or Flambeau Flowages

These large inland lakes have a distinctly wild flavor. If you love sighting eagles, catching fish, and relaxing under the scented cedars like we do, you'll love our Gile or Flambeau Flowage tour.  We promise that this will be an apostle island kayaking tour you will never forget.


We favor Lake Superior, but sometimes, the “Big Lake” is just too rough. The Gile and Flambeau provide wonderful alternatives! Also, the Flowages are wonderfully family and kid friendly (check out the pictures!). Here you’ll find a really safe and relaxing environment for introducing young families to the thrill and enjoyment of wilderness kayak-camping.

Where We Meet

For trips in the Flambeau Flowage we meet at and launch from Lake of the Falls County Park.

There are changing rooms, bathrooms, and free overnight parking there.
