A Unique Experience
in any season

Whatever the time of year, the wilderness of the Flowage provides a breathtaking backdrop for some of the most captivating wildlife you ever hope to see.

Are you an outdoorsman? Whether its Boating, Snowmobiling, Fishing, Ice Fishing, Hunting, Hiking, Skiing or Bird Watching you will find this place an abundant bounty of interest.

In addition to the many birds, the flowage is also home to deer, bear, raccoon, fisher, beaver, otter, and other furbearers as well as many species of reptiles and amphibians. On rare occasions, timber wolves and moose are sighted here.

Snowmobiling is the base of the area's winter tourism economy. There's plenty of riding here with more than 1,300 miles of state-funded trails. Mercer is a full-service center with everything from food and lodging to gas and repair and is the gateway to the Turtle Flambeau Flowage. The area catches lake-effect snow blowing off of Lake Superior. This giant snow generator typically brings snowfalls measured in feet rather than inches.

Over the years the area has had many visitors, some of them notorious. John Dillinger frequented the area. Al Capone, the Chicago gangster, fished the flowage many times, especially in the years after his release from prison. Charlie Comiskey, founder of the White Sox baseball team, used Jerome's Hunting and Fishing Club on Trude Lake as a place for rest and relaxation for himself and his team.

The Turtle-Flambeau Flowage is truly a water wonderland, offering countless opportunities for swimming, canoeing and kayaking. The famous Flambeau River provides adventurous visitors with an unabashed thrill of the wilderness.
