Via the Saint Louis River, it is part of the watershed of Lake Superior. It flows for its entire length in southern Saint Louis County. Its name in the Ojibwe language is askibwaanikaa-ziibi (river full of Jerusalem artichokes), having the identical name in Ojibwe as the near-by Us-kab-wan-ka River.
The river flows from Artichoke Lake in New Independence Township and flows generally southwardly through Alborn and Culver Townships. It flows into the Saint Louis River from the north in Culver Township, opposite the town of Brookston.
