River Description

We are unsure of feasibility of access to this stretch of river. It appears all land in this area is likely held by industries (Escanaba Paper, quarries, railroads, etc). If you can find or request parking, and if not run off the riverbanks, park as near as you can, hike up and boat down. There is an island splitting the flow, and features may exist on each side, making various play opportunities.

SO . . . have you checked this out? It is possible to boat? How good are the features, and what flows work well here? Help out your fellow boaters! Add a comment or report, with photo/video if possible!
