The Kettle River was added to Minnesota's Wild & Scenic Rivers Program in 1975. The designated stretch extends through Pine County to its confluence with the St. Croix River.
The Kettle River has segments in both "wild" and "scenic" classifications (see: general information on river classification).
The original management plan for this stretch of the Kettle River was adopted in 1975.
There is currently no Wild & Scenic Rivers planning process underway for the Kettle River.
