Though canoeing and kayaking is permitted on Whittlesey Creek, the creek is generally too small for the activity. For more experienced paddlers, however, the mouth of Whittlesey Creek can be accessed by paddling along the South Shore of Lake Superior from the boat ramp at Long Bridge, which is located on Old Dump Rd, less than one mile east of the refuge off of Hwy 2.
