My husband, myself, and our friends went early on a Sunday morning to kayak from Argo to Gallup. It was a great, easy activity! $25 for a double kayak and we took our time paddling. It took us about 90 minutes. The cascades are fun! Make sure you feel comfortable in a kayak, especially knowing how to steer one. And... More

This was a fun afternoon activity and I think we most enjoyed kayaking down the river after going through the manmade cascades, which are very mild and very contained, so no worries. We loved simply hooking together and floating a considerable part of the way. There were some very low spots, so be on the alert, or you will have... More

This place gets really busy on the weekends, but if you have to park in one of the overflow lots they do have a shuttle that takes you where you need to be. The staff were all SO nice!!! We rented some canoes, however it looks like tubes are really the way to go. The river was shallow/rocky in some... More

The livery is well run but can get very busy on warm weekends. Get there early to get a parking spot or you will need to park remote and walk. The short canoe trip to Gallop Park is nice for young families, but short for adults. The relatively new Cascades are fun for those with some experience. They are a... More

This place is walking distance from most places in town and the campus of U Michigan. Kayak and raft as well as canoe rentals are available for reasonable prices. They also have cheap gear, like water shoes, to help people stay comfortable. The trip goes down a canal with artificial cascades and then down the river. At the other end... More

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
