|Usual Difficulty||I(II) (varies with level)|
|RED CEDAR RIVER AT EAST LANSING, MI|
|usgs-04112500||640 - 9999 cfs||I(II)||00h58m||160 cfs (too low)|
|Too low. Gauge (355 sq.mi. drainage) is very near this location, thus quite accurately reflects flows.|
The best play wave in southern Michigan when the level is right. There is an old cement, river wide low water dam that is broken up. Most of the year the water is only a few inches deep, but at higher levels a decent play wave is created.
See Flow Info, Map and Directions tabs for additional information.
