Ann Arbor's Argo Canoe Livery and Argo Cascades

Ann Arbor summer is here! The temperatures are in the mid-eighties, kids are out of school, and the festivals have begun. Already this summer is much different than last year. If you did not get the opportunity to try the the new Argo Cascades due to the Huron River's low water levels, then this year is your time to try it!

Welcome to Argo Cascades!

No longer do you have to interrupt your river run down the Huron River, from Argo Pond (just north of downtown Ann Arbor) to Gallup Park, to portage your canoes, kayaks, and tubes. During the spring of 2012, the city of Ann Arbor completed its construction of a boat bypass channel around Argo Dam in the old Argo millrace.

Did You Know?

  • The last time the Huron River flowed freely in this area was in 1830.
  • 500 people took an online survey in February 2012 to help name the renovated area 'Argo Cascades'.
  • Argo Cascades now has nine drops and pools to enjoy!

Relax Among the Greenery

Take a day to enjoy canoeing, kayaking, or tubing down the Huron River, or (new this year) rent a stand up paddle board to paddle along the still water areas. A trip to Argo Canoe and Livery is definitely one of the many ways to see Ann Arbor's beautiful greenery.
