Penrod's is a very impressive facility. The staff was friendly and professional and the equipment was top notch. We had a wonderful trip down the AuSable and will definitely return to Penrod's on our next excursion.

Just got a ride as I have my own kayaks and it was super easy, and the driver was very nice. $20 for a ride isn't too bad

We do not have bike trailers available. Most renters either ride from Penrod's to the paved pathway or load the bikes in their vehicles.
