My husband and I canoed yesterday, it was not the weather forecasted but it could not have been a nicer afternoon on the AuSable in spite of that. It was scenic and peaceful. The Penrod team is really experienced in knowing how to service their river guests.

We have been down this river several times and have always enjoyed the beautiful sites along the way. Penrod’s owner and team have always provided top notch service. They make sure you have everything you need from start to finish.

On a spur of the moment trip over a holiday weekend, Penrod’s was able to work me in for the 2.5 hour paddle. Customer service was on point and I only wish I would have gone earlier in the season. I definitely recommend giving Penrod’s a try if you are looking to enjoy the Au Sable River.
