Begin your paddle at the Highway 13 bridge and enjoy the easy paddle through Smith Lake, location of the Smith Lake County Park & Campground, and Pixley Flowage for several miles down to Pixley Dam. You will have to portage around Pixley Dam along the left shore. The Pixley Dam rustic campground with 2 campsites is available near the dam for paddlers. Less than 6 miles downstream from Pixley Dam, you will find Crowley Dam. The Crowley Dam rustic campground is available at this dam.
