Thinking of doing a 3-day canoe paddle down the Pere Marquette from Baldwin with my brother. Plan to rent in Baldwin rather than haul our canoe out there with two cars for shuttling. Would appreciate hearing from someone who has been there - lessons learned and recommendations.
Specifically wondering about…
- Is the lower river between Custer Rd and US 31 near Ludington worthwhile?
- Campsite availability may be in issue. How crowded is it in early October? Are steelhead still running?
- We will probably start at noon near Baldwin and camp at Gleason’s Landing and Logmark for a Custer Rd takeout. Would something else work better?
