What can you do with a pontoon on the Au Sable? Obviously, you can enjoy miles of untamed wilderness scenery and all the birds and wildlife that live there. But there’s a whole lot more to look forward to, a highlight of all Up North vacations…
There’s some great places for cooling off and playing in the water along the Au Sable between any two dams. The pontoon allows you to enter and exit the water without finding a landing to beach your boat first.
Troll, fish, or swim until you get hungry and grill up something yummy to eat.
Spending the weekend or a week camping and exploring the Au Sable makes for popular Up North vacations people have been enjoying for some 70 years. Renting a pontoon as your watercraft makes the trip pretty memorable for all ages.
While it’s best not to leave the river except at landing sites due to the wild terrain and thickness of undercover plants, there’s a lot to discover inside the National Forest’s thousands of acres. Mushrooms to pick in season. Birds to watch. Wild animals to track and watch. Always interesting, sometimes delightful, and commonly educational.
The waters along our stretch of the Au Sable offer excellent trout fishing. You can catch dinner just as easily from a pontoon as you can a row boat!
