    are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Michigan are often more forgiving than in other states, so
if you're visiting here do keep in mind that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. This section is very short so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good places for that around here. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the South  
Boundary Road to Lake Superior stretch is just one of them. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. The river winds through the Gogebic Range and you get great scenery.

Briefly about the general area:
A visit to Porcupine Mountains State Park when you're here at Presque Isle is a magnificent idea, and do put some time aside to spend at Manabezho Falls while you're here at Presque Isle. All year is a great time in the Gogebic Range if you have a thing about the outdoors. Have a great hiking adventure along the Rainbow Falls Trail, and a trip to Manido Falls will fill your soul with perfect feelings.
