Canoeing, Kayaking & Tubing

One of the most scenic ways to explore Washburn County is by enjoying a nice float down one of the area's rivers or to head out to Washburn County's primitive area, Sawmill Park, to explore the canoe portage routes. Washburn County is home to the Namekagon River: Wisconsin’s Moving National Park, part of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
