Doesn't even feel like you're 10 minutes away from AA! Came here with four adults. Initially was going to start at Gallup, but we accidentally ended up at Argo first. A good thing we did as we had no wait at Argo vs. a 2 hour wait at Gallup. We came with 4 adults, 2 did kayaks, 2 did a... More

Needed outing close by that wouldn't break church teen fund. Ann arbor 1 hr from Lake Orion. Teens wanted to tube. Went on a 90 degree day 7/16/2013 . Had 5 teens 13-18 & three adults. Tubes were resonable to rent but found out park is public so you can bring your own & tube for free. It's not the... More

Went there this summer with a friend. It is very surprising that this is even in Ann Arbor! It was a calm and fun afternoon, delightful ride. The people are very friendly who work there, and the canoes are sturdy. Great views.

If you're canoe enthusiast, it's fun to paddle parts of the Huron. I personally prefer one the lakes outside of Dexter. Nevertheless, a pleasant experience.

For a nominal fee, you can rent a canoe here and glide down the Huron River through Ann Arbor. Every season is special. At several points, you will feel that you could be on a river anywhere in the world. Easy navigating. Take your time and enjoy the ride and nature. When you get to Gallup Park the staff will... More

I have lived here for 17 years and just took a canoe trip on this stretch of the Huron for the first time this summer. It was a hot sunny day, and there were scores of people on the river on the 4th of July. The river widens and is 4 feet deep and more in places. Lots of fun,... More

Plenty of boats to rent; friendly staff. Don't miss "The Cascades", a new kayak run on the Huron River.

This summer, I had each of my nieces - aged 10 and 13 - for a separate visit and took both to Argo for tubing down the mini-rapids. They each had a BLAST. I may or may not have almost lost my tube at one point, but I'm not sayin'. Either way, it was the highlight of their visits and... More

Family of four (two adults, two teens), rented two-person kayaks to go downstream from the Argo livery to the Gallup Park livery. A lot of fun! We're inexperienced but w/about 10 minutes of practicing paddling/steering we went down the Argo Cascades, no problem, and had a good time paddling/drifting down the river.

A great family day out for fresh air and exercise, or a quiet outing for one or two. Last time we were there they had kayaks as well as canoes to rent.
