For example, you can change the length of the trip, area, number of people or boats, camping supplies, and degree of difficulty.

Most of the sites along the river are DNR maintained. They have picnic tables, outhouses, and camping areas. There is no charge to camp at these sites. Free firewood is provided at many of the DNR maintained campsites.

The campground in Big Falls is maintained by the City of Big Falls and costs $12 per night. It is located on the most spectacular falls of the river (Class IV-V). The City Campground has hot showers, water and electric hookups, and free firewood. The view from this campground is worth experiencing even if you don’t choose to camp there!
