Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters AreaSnowmobiles and ATVs

Snowmobiles are allowed on state owned lands on designated trails only. There are a number of snowmobile trails which cross the Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area. Please refer to the Iron County snowmobile trail map before snowmobiling to determine those areas on the property that are legal for snowmobile use.

There are no ATV trails on the property so ATV use is not allowed anywhere on the Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters property.

Snowmobiles and ATVs are allowed on the ice of the Flowage; however, before venturing out onto the ice be sure conditions are safe and you know where you are going. Some areas are hazardous throughout the winter because of currents under the ice. In addition, fluctuating water levels can create uneven ice conditions. ATV's and snowmobiles may access the ice from the boat landings.
