This is a beautiful river to tube or kayak. Great for beginners as it has lots of slow areas and still some challenging spots with speed or with debris. River Run Canoe's did a great job for us, super friendly staff and efficient job done. Very nice van to take you to your put-in. We would definitely use them again!

Very large river off Lake Michigan/pere Marquette lake. Popular fishing spot for steelhead and Salmon. Several family friendly parks, boat launches and access points for wading. Also popular for kayak, canoes, tubing.

Kayak rentals are available, but the river is not wooded. It is all in the open wetlands winding through the cattails. Bring hats and suntan lotion if you paddle in the summer.

Was a peaceful fun two hour trip. Lotsa activity. Kinda tough to explain away the "language" to my nine year old. I kinda expected it. So be prepared for adult activity.

My mother and I kayaked six miles down this river in the early morning. Only one other person was fishing on the river. It was calm, gorgeous, and had amazing wildlife and foliage.
