Riding Chipmunck Falls on the Ocqueoc Says KGR (see picture)

Looking forward to a great 2011 season keep the ocqueoc in your must see plan for this year, we offer old town canoes and kayaks and have daily trips from Ocqueoc Lake downstream to Lake Huron Season starts on Memorial Day

The Ocqueoc is quite perfect for kids and first times yet scenic enough to keep the experienced boater happy. Deadfall is abundant and challenges
    your skill yet current is slow enough to allow you time to manuever, have fun.

Call (989) 245-7204 for info or go to OcqueocOutfitters.com for more info. Says OcqueocOutfitters

The river is full of deadfall and logjams between the falls and Ocqueoc Lake. Says Steve

Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Michigan is often easier than elsewhere, so better not forget that the rivers in this state are less demanding. This stretch of Ocqueoc River in Michigan is 7 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II(III) section by American Whitewater. The beautiful scenery
of Presque Isle County and the water flowing gracefully down Ocqueoc River will make you feel 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. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Alpena, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with not too many other rivers for that. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the CR638 to Ocqueoc Falls Campground stretch is one of them.
