Pine River-Cross Lake Dam to Harvey Drake Landing

Pine River-Cross Lake Dam to Harvey Drake Landing Professional Review and Guide

"A clear stream with a sandy bottom and a few easy rapids, the Pine provides an enjoyable trip for beginning and experienced paddlers alike. With a placid current, great visibility, and plenty of fish to see, you couldn’t ask for a better stream for stand-up paddle-boarding—with the caveat to use caution in the class I rapids near Staircase Landing.

The Pine emerges from Lower Whitefish Lake a much larger river than the stream near the town of Pine River. Put in just downstream from the US Army Corps of Engineers dam at the outlet of Cross Lake in the resort community of Crosslake."
