Enjoy Camping in Northern Michigan on the Pine River

The Pine River is a beautiful and challenging river. It has one of the fastest flows in all of Michigan and has some exciting small rapids. This makes it a challenging and exciting river to paddle.

The Pine River is a Scenic River, and a Blue-Ribbon Trout Stream.  It has native strains of rainbow and brown trout, and we are located along prime stretches of great trout fishing!



Coolwater campground is the perfect overnight spot along the Pine River for 2, or 3 day trips. We have an canoe landing that you can end your day of canoeing and walk to your campsite!  

We can help you coordinate your next canoe and camping trip, from pointing you in the right direction of renting canoes, or helping you spot your own watercraft.  We are the perfect campground for your next canoe trip!
