Bosman's Pine River Canoe Rental LLC - Phone Toll Free: 877-6canoes

THE PINE RIVER is Lower Michigan's fastest moving stream,
with frequent riffles and occasional rapids
throughout. While the rapids of the Pine are not considered big according to whitewater standards, scattered
large rocks and bedrock ledges create small standing waves and require a fair amount of maneuvering. We don't recommend the Pine for small children or first time paddlers. The Pine is also under a Forest Service permit system limiting watercraft use. Saturdays & many Sundays fill to capacity, so make reservations early, click here
for Pine River Trip prices and here for a map of the river. We are located at the junction of M-55
and M-37 near Wellston, MI.
South from Mesick, West from Cadillac, North from Baldwin
and East from Manistee.
