Tips on good places to start and end river tubing?

I know a lot of people buy tubes to go on the river. Where are good places to start and leave one car and then where to get off the river (and be able to leave a second car.)

Platte River, a great place to tube. Leave your car at the M-22 bridge/park and then leave the other one at the Lake Michigan beach. You can also drop your kids/tubes etc about half way down the river between the two, which keeps you out of the bit of inland lake a lot of tubers do not like to access. Riverside Canoe (231-325-5622) can answer all of your questions. Up near the Leelanau Peninsula/Sleeping Bear Dune Platte River Campground.

Wow, I am sorry! I did not notice you had put Mt. Pleasant as your search city!

So, excuse what I wrote, but keep it in mind for future reference. I have never been canoeing on the river in Mt. P!!
