Little Muskegon River

littlemuskegonriverThe Little Muskegon River has itís headwaters in Mecosta County and winds itís way through three Michigan counties. The river begins as a shallow stream and increases in width and depth as it flows thru Montcalm County and then into Newaygo County, where it becomes a tributary of the Muskegon River at the Croton Dam.

Much of the Little Muskegonís riverfront is natural, itís riverbanks lined with a variety of oak, pine, ash and elm. Michigan deer, as well as a wide range of other wildlife and waterfowl, make their home here, enjoying life in their natural habitat. Fisherman report catches of small mouth bass, walleye and perch.

Due to the brush, low hanging limbs and the trees that have fallen into the river, as well as the seasonal water levels, canoeing is only possible in the lower third of the river.

As with much of the waterfront on Michiganís lakes and rivers, much of the property along the river is privately owned. Please respect the rights of property owners by not trespassing.
