Very little development. Good wildlife viewing. Unique wild rice field in August.
Mostly woods and some farm fields.
A. Creekside to Krohn Landing = 2 miles ~1 hour by canoe or kayak. Mostly class 1 moving water with occasional class 1 mild rapids. Best at 6.5* May scrape bottom in low water times, i.e. below 5.5* Winds from W to NW favorable.
Creekside Park (10 yd. carry) is a natural launch. No public toilet facilities.
To avoid hard paddling through rice field in late August through September (see below), take out at NN alternate landing at Hub restaurant. Owner allows parking to boaters any day except Saturdays (wedding party only). Permission is not required. BTW, Hub Restaurant open for dinner only Tues-Fri 4-9pm.
Krohn Landing is at a rock-dam. Landing is NOT signed from river. If you make a sharp 90 degree turn south: you’re past it.
Carry 80 yd. from parking. No toilet facilities.

Rocky rapids from Koehler Rd to Covered Bridge Park. Experience helpful for all water levels. Avoid fallen trees.
