Camping

The Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area offers 66 remote campsites accessible by water only.  The family campsites and two of the group sites do not require registration, a fee, or a camping permit. Six of the group sites are available by reservation only and require a fee.

Camping is allowed in designated campsites only. Designated sites all have a steel fire ring and an open air pit toilet and are identified with a site number. There is a ten day limit on camping at all campsites on the property. In addition, when you set up camp you must occupy the site the first night and you may not leave it unoccupied for more than one night thereafter (you may not leave unattended camping equipment to "save" a site).
