Welcome to Au Sable River country.
Penrod’s is a family owned, operated, and oriented business that caters to family FUN! Our popular one-day trips are perfect for family getaway or a scouting, school, or religious group outing. A day with Penrod’s will be a day to be remembered. For the campers and experienced paddlers, Penrod’s two to seven day trips will create the perfect vacation.
Our popular 2 1/2 and 4 hour trips
Paddling times for these trips are usually 2 1/2 and 4 hours, but you may wish to take some leisure time for fishing, a picnic, or a swim at Canoe Camp. There is no charge for extra time, just let us know at your departure the amount of additional time you will need.
If you would like to avoid any other canoers and have a better chance of seeing some wildlife plan on leaving within the first hour after we open. Our latest departure for the 2 ½ hour Burtons Landing trip is 2:45. The latest departure for the 4 hour Stephan Landing trip is 12:00. Memorial to Labor Day our last pick-up is 5:30.
Please plan your trip accordingly.
