The Turtle Flambeau Scenic Wilderness Waters Area and Trude Lake is comprised of nearly 19,000 acres of water and 35,500 acres of public land for you to use and enjoy throughout the year. Unlike Canada, there is no passport required. Unlike Minnesota’s Boundary Waters, there are no permits required.
The Turtle Flambeau Flowage is a result of the 1926 construction of a dam to create a reservoir. The Turtle Flambeau Dam harnesses the power of the Turtle and Flambeau Rivers to generate energy. The dam created 19,000 acres of water with 212 miles of pristine winding shoreline. The Turtle Flambeau Flowage encompasses 16 natural lakes, three rivers and several creeks.
