The Pomme de Terre River is the northern-most tributary of the Minnesota River. It runs through a variety of land types, including low blufflands, woods, pasture, and some farmland.

"Pomme de terre" is French for potato, and the river is named for the potato-like native plant used as food by the Dakota inhabiting the area.

There are no major rapids. About rapids classes.
