Florence County, WI

Florence County is located in Northeastern Wisconsin on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan border about 1.5 hours North of Green Bay. Over 50% of our land is publicly 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. Or enjoy miles of forested trails to hike, bike, ATV, horseback ride, cross country ski, snowshoe and snowmobile.

CLICK HERE for link to WDNR public comment page to let them know you do not want the Pine River dam removed because it would eliminate the Pine River Flowage fishing and camping and a dam that has provided green energy since 1919. The dam was just rebuilt to last another 100 years. Comments supporting continued use of the Pine River Oxbow for tubing and paddling as well as comments against Old Growth forest management, would be greatly appreciated too. Florence County already has the 7,500 acre Whisker Lake Wilderness area. Old growth forest management there has reduced the variety of plant and animal species. Thank you!
