Back in 2019, took a trip into southeastern La Croix. Headed back this September to Iron Lake. We didn't use a filtration system then and all was fine. This year, I'm thinking it may be needed due to flooding.

Any suggestions?

I love my Katadyn gravity filter. Very easy to use and keep clean. Just a very good idea to let it dry thoroughly between uses and occasionally run some dilute bleach water through it. Northern WI has a number of very "beavery" waterbodies and I've never had a problem.

I like the Sawyer gravity systems in camp. For on-the-go, I really like the Steripens.

I’ve been using the miniworks ex microfilter for about 5 years now with no issues or illness. It screws right to the top of my Nalgene bottle which is super handy and MSR also offers a water bladder that the filter can screw too as well. I haven’t had a chance to use it with the bladder yet, but I assume it would take a fair bit of time to fill a water bladder of any size.

We really love our MSR Hyperflow. It's light, easy to use and quick. Really love the attachment that will screw onto a nalgene water bottle.

I use a three-liter Platypus GravityWorks in camp and carry a 1-liter Katadyn BeFree while tripping.

For the camp site, we use the 4 liter Platypus gravity flow. This is a Godsend compared to what we used 7/8 years ago. For on the go, I have used a Sawyer drink bottle with internal filter as well as the Grayl geopress. I definitely would recommend the Grayl over the Sawyer in this case. Only downside to the Grayl Geopress is the price seems to keep creeping up.

In the past I have used he sawer gravity system. Fill it and have ready water when ever it is needed. Really nice for base camping. Presently I travel alone more often than not. So I use a Bee Free filter system. This is good on the go and reasonalblty acceptable in camp. I always bring an extra blader to hold the filtered water.

I also highly recommend the Platypus GravityWorks Water Filter System 4L. Minimal effort will keep you hydrated the whole trip.
