Paddle on this spectacular stretch of the Huron River

You can launch from many points along Argo Pond (which is the name of this dammed portion of the Huron River), but the most abundant parking is located at Argo Park, Bandemer Park, or Huron Bridge Park. This is a popular place for paddleboarders, kayakers, canoers, and rafters during the summer. Stay away from Argo Dam - it is marked with buoys. One-way trip from Argo Park upstream to Barton Dam takes approximately 1.5 hours (3 hours round trip). 

Paddleboard rentals are available at the Argo Livery during the summer and on the weekends in the warm months of the fall.
