2 Day Camping Trip
Here is a relatively easy overnight trip on the Tahquamenon River that you and your family can do – even if you are a beginner, or inexperienced. This trip starts at the Dollarville Dam and ends at McPhee's Landing. Camping is at the Tahquamenon Logging Museum campground. See more about this 2 day trip here.

Ability required – beginner / River speed – slow / Depth – 2' - 6' with some deep holes / Obstacles – some submerged logs
Upper Falls area Trip
(See Tahquamenon River trail map here)
A great trip for leisurely paddling, fishing, wildlife viewing, and photography. A "must see" for nature lovers. This is a beautiful wilderness area located in the heart of "Tahquamenon Country". Note that the river in this area is very wide open and deep. Also there is a steep incline at exit, and there are no toilets on this trip. We recommend this trip for experienced river navigators ONLY! Your trip begins at a remote launch site, and will end about 1/2 mile before you reach the Upper Falls. Plan on at least 3 hours for this trip.
1st Canoe or Kayak $40, or 2 Kayaks $50
ea. add Canoe $30 / Kayak $25
Lower Falls to Rivermouth Trip
( See Tahquamenon River trail map here )
Another trip that we will be offering this year is a scenic 7-9 hour paddling trip beginning at the Lower Falls, and ending at the Rivermouth. Being mostly flatwater, and because of the paddling time, this can be a strenuous, but also rewarding trip for those that are able to face the challenge. Beginning at the base of the Lower Tahquamenon Falls, you will paddle for 17 miles through some of Michigan's most rugged backcountry. Expect to paddle for between 7 and 9 hours on this trip. Note: We do not recommend this trip for beginners!
1st Canoe or Kayak $65, or 2 Kayaks $75
ea. add. Canoe $35 / Kayak $27.50
All of our trips include delivery/shuttle, paddles, and PFDs
We also offer multi-day trips
Sorry, but we do not accept credit cards
We got a video of this young moose as he visited us on the Fourth of July, 2011
at 7:30 in the morning. Later in the morning he was seen leading a procession of cars down M-123 as he walked casually down the shoulder of the road.
