We have very little information on the whitewater available on this run. Satellite map views are quite good, so you may wish to go to the "Maps" tab, click for the satellite view, zoom in to nearly maximum resolution and do a 'digital walk' down the river.The final two miles of the run will be a paddle out on Victoria Falls reservoir.
There will be a number of smaller creeks which will come into this run. A major confluence will be the South Branch of the Ontonagon.
Somewhere about here (depending upon flow and 'pond elevation') you will be in the backwaters of Victoria Falls Dam. The remainder of the trip will therefore be dead-flatwater.
About 1.8 miles downstream of the confluence of the South Branch and the West Branch of the Ontonagon, a small creek enters from the right (south). (It should be readily identified, as it comes in at the southernmost point in an oxbow where the river heads south, then turns abruptly back north.) Maps conflict about the name (either Topp Creek or Johnson Creek). In any event, the topo maps show (about a quarter mile up this stream) a 'Sandstone Falls'. It may be worth a little side hike to check it out.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
