We’ve kayaked the PM several times. We prefer the upper section. It’s a beautiful, calm river, mostly through the woods. We have River Run Canoe in Scottsville spot us up river as we have our own equipment. We like longer trips, so they take us up around Custer I think. Going further up river has fewer paddlers & no floaters for most of the trip. It’s about a three hour paddle back to the park in Scottsville.

Great river good for all ages easy float and if you come in late September you will see 100's of salmon swimming upstream to spawn.

We used Baldwin canoe rental. Highly recommend them. They put you in the river then drive your car to the take out point. SWEET!!!

I did a morning kayak trip and it was spectacular. Only fisherman along the stretch going for salmon, steelhead and lake trout. This segment was very easy to navigate. What a perfect way to start a Saturday morning!

What a lovely place to visit, walk and watch the boats. Very romantic, quiet and clean. I look forward to visiting again very soon!

Went kayaking with my wife and other family members on the Pere Marquette river. The river was pretty calm the day we were on it. Saw a few white swans along our trip, nice clean river and very popular for kayakers and fishing.
Looking forward to kayaking again and kayaking farther up the river.

Thank Chris S
