There is really only a rather short pond/pool between the upper and lower rapids, making for very nearly a mile of fine nearly continuous rapids.
USGS lists a site with drainge area at this point as 194 square miles.
The take-out is at a Republic Township campground at the mouth of the Spruce River, rules for which are posted at: Republic Michigan.com.
