Great experience!

If you go to Ann Arbor, you should go kayaking in this park. It is so interesting and easy to get a kayak or a canoe. The equipment is good. I had a lot of fun with rapids.

This is such a gem right in the city! Without having to drive up north, you can easily rent a kayak (single or double) for a couple of hours. You start out by going through The Cascades, which are a series of fairly gentle rapids near the Broadway bridge and then just go downstream at your own speed until you... More

Literally so much fun! Rent a raft or canoe and lazily drift down the river and (gentle) "Rapids". Alcohol isn't allowed but coolers are allowed ;)

My husband and I rented a canoe for their 1.5 hour river trip. It was wonderful! Beautiful scenery hidden in the city. We enjoyed it so much we decided to do this trip again the next week! Our mistake; thinking all canoes are the same. The second trip found us in an older canoe that had a pretty rough bottom.... More

Had a great time today taking a Kayak ride down the Argo rapids on the Huron River. Started at Argo Park and went downstream for a 1.5 hour ride with my 4 year old niece and family. Had a great time ... Especially in the rapids

We live about an hour away and arrived in Ann Arbor pretty close to noon on a Saturday. We wanted to do the longer Barton to Gallup kayak trip, but that was full. So we decided to head to Argo for the Argo to Gallup trip. This trip is supposed to take an hour and a half, but if you... More

We spent a very enjoyable 3 hours floating down the Huron from Argo to Gallup park. We rented 2 2-man kayaks; the fees are very reasonable. Our kids (2 pre-teen boys) got a safe and tiny taste of kayaking rapids in the not difficult Cascades section at the beginning of the trip; after that the water is very calm and... More

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.
