Yet another Sturgeon River in the U.P. with a short stretch of rapids. This one may offer some minor park-and-play, or short shuttle reach.
USGS lists a sampling site with drainage area of 183 square miles.
A very short bit of gradient may offer play at some flows.
The longer stretch of gradient (such as it is) starts with a minor ledge/wave, followed by some light boulder-bed rapids. Again, there may be some play at some flows.
If needed/desired, you could paddle (or drive) down to this campgrounds.

Permits are not required for this reach.
While there is good parking at put-in and take-out, this reach is short enough that shuttle is likely on foot.
