Huron (Washtenaw) - B) Ann Arbor "Argo Cascades" (PnP)
Flows in this range allow for optimum canoe passage and tame swift-water fun. Gauge (729 sq.mi. drainage) just downstream of this location accurately reflects water available. Expect regulation of flows in the course vs.main channel.
This water park consists of a series of nine tame drops into pools, largely as a
canoe bypass around the Argo dam. The city runs two liveries which rent one- and two-person
kayaks ('sit-on-tops') and rafts. Separately, it is free to the general public to
bring personally-owned inflatables (mostly inner-tubes and the like), canoes or kayaks to run the
gentle rips to cool off in summer.
There had also been plans for a more serious whitewater feature or two (which might draw
legitimate whitewater boaters' interests) but this has been much more controversial.
