It flows southeast through the Superior National Forest, Finland State Forest, and George H. Crosby Manitou State Park in Lake County.
The Caribou River watershed is adjacent to the east, while to the west is the Baptism River. The Isabella River, which is a part of the Hudson Bay watershed, is to the north across the Laurentian Divide.
