The U.S. Forest Service limits the number of watercraft allowed on the river each day though a permit system. Call the U.S. Forest Service (231-745-4631) or go to www.recreation.gov to reserve a daily permit for each of your watercraft. The permit fee is $3.00 per watercraft. They will need to know which section of river you wish to paddle, as there is a daily limit in each section. We recommend that you request Section #2 or #3. , because most of our rental customers are in Section #1, therefore, it is a busier stretch of river.
You can sign up at our office or over the phone. Also, you can TEXT car spots to 231-679-0190 (give trip details, description of car, and key locations)
