    Description

    Discusses canoeist use of and opinions concerning management of the Pine River in Michigan. Users enjoyed the rapids and the wild, natural shoreline appearance and objected to littering and crowding. The present level of weekend and holiday use apparently satisfies the diversified desires of most canoeists. However, reduction of numbers or more even distribution during the day would increase the quality of the experience and lessen the resource impact. Canoeists requested modest additional facilities but expressed little concern about severely eroding streambanks and a dam they had to portage around.
