Canoeing or kayaking on the Minong Flowage or any of the other lakes and rivers in the area can be a pleasant experience.
The beautiful local rivers, such as the Totogatic, Namekagon (tributary of the St. Croix River), or the St Croix itself offer more of a challange. These rivers are protected by the National Park Service as Wild and Scenic Rivers.
For more information on the area rivers follow the below links.
