Fall Color Float

September 30th, 2017Canoeing on the Manistique River

Take a beautiful float down the Manistique River and see the fall colors.  Join refuge staff for a 4-5 hour canoe/kayak trip September 30th, 2017. Fall is a beautiful time to visit the refuge.  Hopefully we will catch the leaves changing color. Pack a lunch, dress for the weather (could be warm or cool), and remember to pre-register so we know that you're coming. Bring your own boat or rent one from one of the local outfitters.  This year the Fall Color Float will depart from the Big Cedar Campground in Germfask, MI at 11 am.  Please be ready to depart at that time.

Contact the Visitor Services Manager for more details. There are local outfitters in Germfask who offer canoe and kayak rentals as well as shuttle service.

Rain Date

If it is raining, snowing, or below 40°F the "Fall Color Float" will be rescheduled for the following day, Sunday, October 1st, 2076. If the weather is still not cooperating we will cancel the trip for the year.

We have enjoyed the "Fall Color Float" on days as cold as 40°F. As long as you dress appropriately it is still a lovely day. We suggest dressing in layers and bring an extra set of clothes in a water tight bag. Because of the chill in the air only experienced paddlers are encouraged to attend this event.
