It covers 488 sq miles and has 4023 permanent residents (2010 census). Over 50% of our land is publically owned so you won't feel crowded enjoying your favorite four season outdoor activities here. We have 265 lakes for fishing, swimming and boating. 165 miles of rivers to paddle, tube float or fly fish including two official state designated "Wild Rivers", the Pine and the Popple. 80% of our County is forested with miles of scenic trails to hike, bike, ATV, horseback ride, cross country ski, snowshoe and snowmobile.
Florence County is a great place to live, work and play; pardon the cliche.
