The AuSable River is one of Michigan's Wild and Scenic rivers. It provides excellent opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, tubing, rafting and wildlife viewing. The river from Grayling to Oscoda is all wilderness with primitive camping along the river. We offer trips ranging from 2½ hours to 7 days. With an average depth of one to three feet and four to six mile per hour current, the river is great for young and old alike. Join us for a great vacation experience.
Our most popular trip is 8 miles of primitive wilderness, designated as a wild and scenic stretch of the AuSable River. Early in the morning you are likely to see deer, mink, beaver, eagles, and all types of ducks. Call us to reserve a trip on the most beautiful stretch of the AuSable River. (989) 735-2973

Enjoy the majestic AuSable River in a tube; it is one of the best ways to spend a hot, sunny afternoon. The AuSable is a great tubing river with very few episodes of rump-bumpin!
