Au Sable River Trips

Rates apply on a per-craft basis and all arrive back at Rollway’s dock. Charges include all equipment and delivery to drop off and pickup, if needed.

FLOAT TIMES

The U.S. Forest Service requires our canoes, kayaks, and tubes be off the water before 6:00 p.m., and ask that we launch no earlier than 10:00 a.m. at the Thompson’s Landing launch site. Please plan your trip according to the departure times and be on time to avoid disappointment.

ALL watercraft must be in by 6 .p.m. Late arrival fees: $50.00 per hour/per watercraft.

SAFETY

The river is 1 to 3 feet deep with a current speed of about 6 to 8 miles per hour. Just right for Au Sable canoe trips the whole family will enjoy without concerns over safety.

That being said, ‘safety’ depends on each individual. Use common sense while on the water. We do not assume responsibility for your safety on the river.

OVERNIGHT TRIPS

Camping is free along most sections of the river. However, there are some sections where a permit is necessary.

Be On Time – All Trips Leave On The Hour
