Crow Wing River-First Crow Wing Lake to Mary Brown Landing Professional Review and Guide

"Leaving First Crow Wing Lake, the Crow Wing River takes on the character of free-flowing stream. Clear and placid, it's perfect for the first-time river runner. Wooded and largely undeveloped, this stretch has many campsites and is a good choice for an overnight trip.

The current is lively, but there are no rapids along this section of the Crow Wing River. Because of its beginnings in a series of lakes, the river flows exceedingly clear. The riverside is wooded. At the put-in, run the rock dam under the bridge or put in below. About 2 miles below the put-in, the Shell River joins from the west (river mile 88.2). It too is clear, with a sandy bottom."
