Cedar River Canoe / Kayak / Tube Trips
We here in Gladwin are a little bit biased but we feel that the “Golden” Cedar River is just as pretty as the Rifle River, Ausable River and Muskegon River yet is closer to Detroit an still considered “up north”.
This gentle flowing river is aprox. 30’-40’ wide in most areas and is generally 1’- 3’ deep and is crystal clear clean for swimming or fishing.
The “Golden” Cedar River starts east of Harrison and flows into Wiggins Lake (which is damned up at Chapel Dam) it then flows thru Gladwin all the way to Beaverton where it flows into Ross Lake (which is damned up) which then flows into the Tobacco River which then flows into Wixom Lake (Tittabawassee River damned up) which then flows down to Sanford Lake (Tittabawassee River damned up) which then later flows into the Saginaw River which flows into Lake Huron at Bay City. This is quite the river system.
