    Spring on the Gile Flowage

    The Gile Flowage, in the early spring, is stark and beautiful. This is the time when we start preparing to boat, fish, swim, canoe or any other water activity that one can enjoy. First Rock gives a glimpse to the beauty that is the Gile Flowage.

    Gile Flowage Summer

    Summer has always brought a smile to the faces of folks who play on the Gile Flowage. Whether you boat, fish, swim, canoe or whatever water activity brings FUN, the Gile Flowage is the place to be. Small mouth bass fishing is second to none and the action is great. The Gile is the place to wet a line.

    Fall Gile Flowage

    The breathtaking colors of fall are even more beautiful when viewed by the reflecting waters of the Gile Flowage. The crisp smell of fall is heavy in the air and the colors are truly a sight to see. First Rock, once again, is displayed in all of its finery.

    Gile Flowage in Winter

    Winter brings a special beauty to the Gile Flowage. The Hurley Area pursues just as many activities in the winter as it does in the warmer weather and the Gile Flowage is the place for that hard ice fishing. Snowmobile trails glide across the Gile Flowage as weather permits. First Rock showing its quieter side.

Welcome to Hurley Wisconsin!



We've got them in abundance.  As our rivers race northward toward Lake Superior, more than 30 cascades surround the Hurley Area.  Here we'll share a look at a dozen with public access in Iron County.  Yet there are even more in every direction, particularly on the Black River Scenic Byway, which begins in the neighboring upper peninsula, about five miles from Hurley.  Whether you come to simply look, take pictures, enjoy nature's beauty, or find the vitalized mist rising from a waterfall, where micro molecules maximally absorb atmospheric oxygen to be healthful refresher, we welcome you.

Wilderness and Wildlife

There are 377,900 acres of forest land in Iron County - 79.8% of the land. The Northern Highland - American Legion State Forest is in the southern part of the county. In addition to our own forest lands, the Hurley area is flanked by the Chequamegon National Forest and Apostle Island National Lake Shore to the west and the Ottawa National Forest and the Porcupine Mountain State Wilderness to the east, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Surrounded by more than a million acres of private, county, state and national forests makes Hurley your perfect headquarters when planning a wilderness adventure.
