Little Muskegon River
The river corridor features steep banks and unique scenery. The forest along the river varies from mixed oak, pine and aspen to white cedar and hemlock stands. As the river flows through the Huron-Manistee National Forest paddlers will be treated to a varied ride starting with a pool and riffle stream, moving into a wider, deeper and slower float as the river approaches Croton Dam Pond. For most of the trip the river travels at a steady 2.5 mph and even shallow portions of the river are passable during summer months.
As paddlers enter the pond they will be sharing the area with larger boats and water-skiers. Ownership along the river is primarily private and there are no federal facilities available.
