Brule River Kayaking

Kayak the World Famous Brule River with Kinni Creek Outfitters.
Whether you are in the mood for a peaceful float with the family or the challenge of an exciting ride through whitewater, the Bois Brule River in northern Wisconsin is an experience of a lifetime.This unique, 44-mile-long river varies from a meandering stream in a conifer bog to a fast-flowing river with numerous rapids and ledges. It includes gentle stretches for novices and rapids to challenge experienced paddlers. 

The Brule has a pleasant small-river character in a gorgeous northwoods setting. The surrounding landscape varies from high wooded banks in small rolling hills, to dense northern lowland forest, and open wetlands. Cedar, spruce, balsam fir, red pine, aspen, maple, birch, and various thickets cover the river banks.

Wildlife is abundant, especially in the morning and afternoon hours. Paddlers are likely to see, white-tailed deer, beaver, muskrat, raccoon, and river otter. Among the bird-life you are likely to see are, wood duck, common merganser, belted kingfisher, spotted sandpiper, great blue heron, and several species of warbler. The river is also a popular trout stream with brown and brook trout frequently pulled from the many pools scattered throughout the river's length.

Please use courtesy when on the river. Remember:
    • Leave no trace
    • Respect private property
    • Pack out whatever you pack in
    • Use quiet voices
    • Show respect and sensitivity to others enjoying the river.

River flow (in cubic feet per second) and water levels can fluctuate significantly in the lower (northern) section of the Bois Brule River. Rain and snow melt can increase water flow and raise water levels quickly, creating fast and dangerous conditions.
