  Shuttle for the Brule River and more
  Posted by: simonbee on Oct-20-11 10:17 PM (EST)

I have run this river a few times and always enjoy it immensely. I usually run it from Hwy 189 to the Flowage near Florence. My favorite camp site is at Two Foot Falls (an easy CL2 ledge). The site can easily accommodate three tents and several more on lesser flat ground. The river has good current and even-though the distance seams great, one can easily do the trip in a two day paddle with the bonus of one additional rapid to run (La Chapelle Rapids). Camp sites are few on this river so prepare to do some bush-waking if the Two Foot Fall site is taken. There is possibility to camp a bit further down river on the Michigan site. I ran the Brule last spring in high water and cruised at almost six miles an hour (left two foot falls at 8:30 and was at the take out before noon). Walter Roberts has shuttled me in the past he is very nice guy and was not very expensive. I usually meet him in the parking lot at the take-out in Florence he then rides with me to the put-in on HWY 189 and then takes my car back to the flowage. (715) 528 5351 Cell (715) 889 2978.
