It is a beautiful place! We cannot wait to go back! The staff and management are as helpful and patient as possible. It was my first trip down a river in a kayak. My husband and I stopped in, by chance, on our way home from Mackinaw on our anniversary weekend We fell in love and decided to stay. We were able to get their last cabin and arrange for a 2 1/2 hour kayak trip all within an hour. We HIGHLY recommend going.

Just went canoeing for a few hours. Everything was great. Staff was friendly and attentive. Canoes and paddles were in good shape. Gave us good directions to get down the river.

What a great day with family and friends. The family we invites up to spend the day on the river could not stop talking about the service you provide and the river. They drove up from Lansing. They will be back with friends. We are from Va and we will see you next year for a longer trip or camping stop on the river. Thanks again and you gained another family or two.

We have been using Penrod's for years. Service is excellent both in store and at the pick up.
