Never been here before so three of us decided to go on a fishing/camping trip for a few days. Launched at Murrays Landing which was very nice. Paddled two kayaks and one canoe up the river system until we reached Site R-31 and we were quite impressed. It took about two hours to get there and the scenery was awesome.... More

I only learned of TFF just last year and was eager to go paddle it since I read in several articles it being called "the Boundary Waters of Wisconsin." While I wasn't disappointed I was surprised it was compared to the Boundary Waters because of the pervasiveness of motorboats on TFF. You can find motorboats everywhere on TFF and not... More

We have been camping at the Turtle Flambeau Flowage for the last 4 years and every year we enjoy it. Have stayed at multiple campsites which have all been great. Love the peace and quiet, loons, eagles, and other wild life we have seen. Fishing was good, lots of bass, walleye, bluegill and perch.

do not go anywhere near Joe MILLERS resort unless you have written proof of your reservation. The "wife" booked our reservation over the phone and after driving for 6 1/2 hours, we arrived to her telling us we had no reservation. Mind you we have a full truck of supplies and a dog with us that she ok'd only to... More

Our family has been coming to the Turtle Flambeau Flowage for around a decade and we just love it. It was sad to see that a tornado had ruined a great deal of the large trees on the islands but we are hoping others will pop up in their place. This is a an awesome place to camp, even though...

If you have been here with a guide (and you really almost have to in order to navigate and know where all the fish hide), you will love, love this body of water to fish!!! Just be careful of all the stumps, the damage to your lower unit and/or prop could be pricey!!

beautiful large body of water with lots of wildlife, even when there is still ice on the surface. Good place to watch water birds.

We took our kids here with our pontoon boat and they had a wonderful time. There are roughly 60 islands with camping spots and they are very cool. The fishing is very good for little kids and it seems as though we were always able to catch something. We would certainly recommend this place to anyone with or without a... More

I've gone to the Turtle Flowage only in the early winter and it's fantastic. It's so different from seeing it in the spring or summer. The water still flows and the ice formations are fantastic. You can still see wildlife but I go just for the quiet and the beauty of the snow everywhere in the pines and on the... More

We stayed in several cabins along the flowage during our recent family fishing trip to Mercer. The location was perfect! We were right on the water with boat access to fish. Just beautiful!!
