Rusk County, Wisconsin
Rusk County is home to 88,000 acres of public land, offering an endless amount of activities. Hop on your ATV, and discover the beauty of nature cruising down any one of our twenty miles of trails. Drop your kayak in any of our magnificent wild four rivers- the Flambeau, the Chippewa, the Jump, and the Thornapple. Each river has its own unique patterns, making every kayak, canoe, or tubing journey exciting. Cast a line in hopes of your dream fish- the fish are bountiful all year round! The winter season is just as beautiful. Spend the days skiing on our neatly-groomed cross country ski trails, adding up to over fifty kilometers. Travel over the three hundred and twenty miles of snowmobile trails, stopping at any of our three warming shelters along the way. When you need a break, stop downtown and check out our farmers’ markets, unique downtown shops, extensive historical museum, and train display- there is always something to explore!
