Friends and Family Canoe Trip in August near Grayling, MI

The 9th Annual Friends and Family Canoe Trip will be held the weekend of August 23-24.  We will be heading up to Canoe Harbor State Forest Campground on the South Branch of the Au Sable River on Friday night, August 22.  There are no reservations available, so it is first-come first-served.  Generally speaking, there are usually plenty of sites to choose from in this primitive facilities campground, but I have no ability to reserve sites.

We will base camp at Canoe Harbor and on Saturday we will shuttle upstream to Roscommon and float back to camp on the South Branch.   The trip is expected to take five hours once we actually launch.  On Sunday we will launch from Canoe Harbor on the South Branch and take out on the Mainstream of the Au Sable River at McMaster’s Bridge.  It is expected to take about four hours of paddling on Sunday once we actually launch.

This is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat) but rentals are available if necessary in Roscommon.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or needs.  This is a self-guided trip

  1. Jay, count me in for 2, sounds like fun I have done this stretch several time and never tire of the beauty of the mason tract. I will probably
    go up early on friday. Any preferred sites in mind? I really don’t think there is a bad one. Randy
