PINE RIVER KAYAK ROUTES

Whether you are looking for a casual one-hour stroll on the beautiful Pine River or a day long adventure, our kayak routes can help you plan the trip. We know the river and can shuttle you anywhere from the city of Pine River to just north of its confluence with the mighty Mississippi.


All kayak route maps are approximate, not exact, and intended to help you visualize the route and plan your trip. We are happy to provide a guided river trip for an additional fee.

We recommend Route #11 as being the most family friendly, easy to get into, lazy floating experience. Pack a lunch and have a picnic!

We recommend you pack:

  • Water or beverage of choice

  • Sunscreen, sungalssees, and bug spray

  • Snacks or picnic lunch

  • Waterproof or double sealed bag for phones, binoculars, or cameras

  • Towels and extra clothes could be handy
