Chippewa River Professional Review and Guide

"A pleasant, scenic river that winds through the fields and forests of Michigan’s heartland. The Chippewa River is a pretty and easily accessible stream that slices through the midsection of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.

It actually runs for more than 80 miles from its origins in Mecosta County to Midland, where it joins the Tittabawassee River. But the best paddling is found in its middle reaches, where the river moves at a soothing pace through countryside that remains surprisingly unspoiled, especially above Mount Pleasant."
