The Brule River is a popular attraction for those coming to the area, and a local favorite. It forms a portion of the Wisconsin-Michigan border, approximately 30 miles long. Both the Iron River and the Paint River flow into the Brule, and the Brule itself eventually joins the Michigamme River to form the Menominee River. There are 8 separate trips that can be taken beginning with the Brule River Campgrounds at Highway M-73 in Wisconsin, and ending at the Highway US-2 Bridge near Florence, WI. Most of the river is relatively flat water, with a few mild class I-II rapids which can be paddled by willing beginners. Expect to see abundant wildlife such as osprey, deer, herons, bald eagles, beaver, etc.
