Michigan whitewater, Huron River

Washtenaw county, Delhi Mills section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     2.4 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. The scenic beauty of Washtenaw County and the cool fresh water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The put-in is not too far from Ann Arbor, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Getting some good
    exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will have you coming back for more. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. And of course, there are campgrounds
nearby. No shortage of good hotels, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a pretty small number of paddling spots. The Delhi Mills section of Huron River in Michigan is 2.4 miles long and is a class I-II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater.
