Our 11th Annual Family Canoe/Kayak Trip will be Saturday and Sunday August 28-29, 2010 on the Manistee River. Camping will be at the CCC Bridge State Forest Campground Click here: CCC Bridge State Forest Campground Detail. Most of us will meet there to camp on Friday, August 27. Camping is on a first-come/first-served basis. There are several other campgrounds nearby if it is full.
We will be floating from the campground down to M-66 on Saturday, with lunch at the Lower Sharon Bridge. We will end Saturday’s trip at M-66 for a total of about 7 hours on the river.
Sunday we will float from M-72 down to the campground, which is about 4-5 hours, but we will make a day of it and have lunch on the river somewhere.
There are numerous canoe and kayak rentals in the area if you need boats, so just post a comment if you do, and I will list the liveries. The river is suitable for all abilities and ages.
