I highly recommend taking the kayak from Argo to Gallup Park. A very enjoyable and inexpensive 2 hour trip. A two person kayak is $28. Do bring a zip lock bag. You will get a little wet and if your kayak does get sideways on you down the falls, it will flip but very shallow water.

It was a nice day today, sunny and warm. Decided to rent a Kayak from Argo and go down to the Gallop livery. The equipment was in good shape, easy to put in. This part of the river had steady current with very few pools where you had to paddle, though we paddled the entire trip.

My wife and I enjoy double kayaking in quiet places. We arrived at Argo early on a Fourth of July weekend. They have plenty of watercraft and the stillwater area was quiet despite having several other groups on the river. The only noise we encountered was passing under the freeway. Aside from that, it's like being up north since there... More

Did the Argo to Gallup Raft trip. The rapids at the beginning were fun. Nothing to be alarmed about if you haven't done it before. The raft and life jackets were in good shape, and the workers were friendly and knowledgeable. Once through the rapids at the beginning, it is a leisurely drift down the river, nice and relaxing. And... More

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

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
