We had two 12 foot kayaks that were easy to use on the river. We arrived at Loon Lake in 20 minutes and had a hard paddle against the wind (stay to the right shore) as there is no marker to re-enter the river.
We saw only two other kayakers and 3 bass fishermen who were having "a good day fishing". The rest of the river was a pleasant float with few houses, lots of birds, ducks and trout.
The gate was open at the Fish Wier so there was no portage.
Take-out is a nice area with views of Sleeping Bear; picnic tables, dunes to climb, swimming and flush toilets.
The Lower Platte trip was under two hours with surprisingly few people on that sunny, 70 degree day.
