White Pine River Access


White Pine River Access, also known as Indian Grave Creek, is a great place for kayakers and canoers to access the Lochsa River. Located at milepost 138 on highway 12, visitors will find a primitive gravel drive leading to the put-in/take-out area where there is room to unload one group at a time.  Parking enough for 4 vehicles is provided above the river access area, along the highway.
