We put in at Hemlock Park with a car spotted at Holly Rd. where it stops at the river. The first part of the trip was shallow, a little overgrown, and very buggy. After we got through the woods, the river opens up to become a little wider, deeper and slower. Wildlife was present with some woodchucks, muskrats and lots of birds!! We even had a small doe cross the river within 20 feet of us. The doe stopped and watched as we paddled by. It was pretty cool.

Overall it's a great little evening trip, took us just under 2 hours. Very easy to find with the aid of Mapquest and a sense of "lets see where this takes us."


From U.S. 31 in Ottawa County, Michigan (between Holland and Grand Haven), take Croswell St. west to Olive Dr. then go south to park.
