Michigan whitewater, Little Iron River

Ontonagon county, Nonesuch Falls to Highway 107 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-III(IV)     7.5 miles
  The average Michigan whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be easier to run than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. The put-in location is a short drive from Merrill, as you can see on the road map further down. The wild scenery of the Gogebic Range is great. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short
    distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, you can easily run it on an afternoon. The scenic beauty of Michigan
and the cool fresh water have people coming here. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good spots. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Nonesuch Falls to Highway 107 section is one of them. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature will make you glad  
you came. This section of Little Iron River is 7.5 miles long and is a class II-III(IV) section of whitewater according to American Whitewater.

Briefly about the general area:
Really great skiing awaits you at Porcupine Mountain; since you're here you ought to visit Union Bay. So many fun things to do in the Gogebic Range, not sufficient time. You positively should pop by Lake Gogebic State Park since you're here at Little Iron River; a short spree to Pewabeck Falls is always worthwhile. This river is always fun. A journey to Porcupine Mountains State Park when you're here at Little Iron River is never a bad idea, and during your tour here you'll meet some people from White Pine for sure.
