Long Prairie River-Lake Carlos to Long Prairie Professional Review and Guide

"The Long Prairie River flows placidly through a pleasing mix of woods, wetlands, and farm fields.

Put in at Lake Carlos State Park and paddle south along the shore to the outlet into the Long Prairie River. Almost immediately you’ll have to paddle over or portage a low dam (river mile 93.4). There’s an alternate put-in at the South Park Drive NE bridge (river mile 93.2), immediately below the dam. There’s a parking area but no developed access."
