Try kayaking for a good time on the Pine


With historical significance and an abundance of wildlife, the Pine River has a lot to offer. Locals are now starting to revive the river’s use by locals.

Official DNR maps record the length of the Pine at 59.2 river miles stretching from Pine Mountain Lake in Backus, all the way to the Mississippi. Each stretch of the river has a different personality, some are narrow with bogs, some wide with sand and gravel bottoms. The river has a lot of unused potential.
