American Legion Northern Highland fores

Looking for some advice on canoe routes for the American Legion Northern Highland Forest in Wisconsin. I'm looking for routes that have fairly short and easy portages of around a quarter mile or less.
Great Products from the Buyers' Guide:

on what you're looking for. If you want a two or three day trip the Manitowish is probably best for that; plenty of great campsites along the way and easy portages.http://dnr.wi.gov/forestry/stateforests/sf-nh-al/NH-AL-rec-canoe.htm
The river empties into the Turtle/ Flambeau Flowage which has dozens of campsites available to paddlers. The upper Wisconsin River also has paddle only campsites, for more information on it-http://www.rwtcanoe.com/
The Tomahawk is very pretty but doesn't have camping along it but, it does form the Willow Flowage where there is plenty of camping.
If you can wait a few months we will have our new DVD guide book, River Trails of Northern Wisconsin out on the shelves. In it we describe all three river routes.
