Q:

I have never kayaked before - is this a good place for me to learn/practice?

Diane B.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

The Chippewa River is great for beginners. 3ft average depth, and a 4-5mph current for most of the summer. Right now the water is still a little quicker than normal from the Spring but we still have one of the most relaxing rivers around! Feel free to call me with questions, concerns 989 772-5437
