Great Experience renting two person kayak through the City of AnnArbor Gallop & Argo Canoe Liveries. $30 for a two person kayak on the Barton to gallop 5.7 mile trip. Easy check in and helpful staff. Parked at Gallop livery with a short 10-15 minute van ride to the Barton launch. Great trip for novices with a bit of excitement... More

Very friendly staff, a lot of rental options at very reasonable price. We rented tandem kayaks for $18 for two hours. We returned after three hours but they did not charge anything extra. They also offer their kayaking trip which could be a adventure but we passed on that this time. Huron river around the kayaking area is not very... More

This is a beautiful park with miles of paved trails, islands connected with pretty bridges that have nicely groomed wood chip paths. There is a canoe livery, lots of picnic areas, playscapes for the little ones (and the young at heart). There are short distance as well as long distance trails.

Our family did the 2-3 hour kayaking trip which included the Cascade falls. The falls are small. Big enough that they can tip you if you don't go down pretty straight but having said that, it's very easy to line your kayak up. There were 3 in our group and no one tipped over. This was a lot of fun!... More

There is a food counter inside the canoe livery office. This is a great little place for fresh brewed coffee and Zingerman's baked goods. If you go early in the day (they open at 9 am daily in the summer) you can sit outside in the shade under an umbrella on the terrace near the Huron River and watch the... More

The rates are very reasonable. The workers helpful. The exit out of the livery can be crowded but once you get to open water there are so many good directions to go and get pit away from the crowd. The warmer the weather the bigger the crowd. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boats all available. They have life vests for you and... More

Went here for kayaking lessons because I've never kayaked before and we were planning a kayak trip with the kids. So i thought I'd try some lessons and I'm so glad i did! The staff was really amazing and professional. They go through everything from safety and what you should wear and the different types of kayaks. Out in the... More

It was a crummy day and we arrived early. When we got back, about 50 people were waiting in line for kayak vans. It's beautiful! My daughter and I just paddle boated for and hour. My husband and son kayaked. It was a lot of fun!!!

My two teen age daughters and I kayaked the Barton to Gallup trip over the Memorial Day weekend. It took us nearly three hours to complete. The water level is quite low for this time of the year, which doesn't bode well for late summer trips when the water level will be even lower. The beginning mile and a half... More
