Registration

When you arrive at Penrod's you  will register in the office. At this time you will determine how far you would like to go and how many canoes and or kayaks you will need. We will then do what we call a "Map run through" with you and your group. This consists of about a two minute slide show explaining where the public stopping areas are, restroom locations and a description of your landing. You will also be given a map to take with you. Then we will determine an approximate pick-up time for you. The 2 1/2 hours is based on easy paddle on the water time. If you would like to stop to picnic or swim just let us know before you leave and we will add time on to your trip. Some people choose to take a cell phone so they can alter there pick-up time while on the water.

The mainstream of the Au Sable River is a great family river. Penrod's Au Sable Canoe and Kayak Grayling MI

Departure

Enjoy your Trip

The best time of day to go is within one hour after we open. Even on busy Saturdays if you leave in the first hour you can quite often have the river to yourself. Enjoy a leisurely picnic on the river or stop and take a swim on hot day. One hour downstream there is over a mile of state land. Two hours down is Canoe Camp which is a state forest campground.
