Chippewa River Outfitters is a great place to have fun. It's just like they say ''Adventurte and fun for everyone'' Says Mike

The nature scenery of Isabella County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream beats anything. The Mount Pleasant stretch of Chippewa River in Michigan is 0.1 miles long and is a class I-II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. This is a very short section so no need to
    bring snacks. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. Chippewa River doesn't have a lot of paddling stretches, the Mount Pleasant stretch is the only one. The average Michigan whitewater rafting or kayaking
river tends to be a bit easier to master than those in other states, so keep in mind that a lot of the rivers in this state are suitable for beginners. Lodging is available near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.
