Jordan River Professional Review and Guide

"A fun, spirited river that winds through the gorgeous Jordan Valley. The Jordan River offers one of the finest canoeing experiences in the entire state. Michigan’s first federally designated “Wild and Scenic River,” the Jordan tumbles through a picturesque valley of maple, aspen, cedar, and birch forestlands that is particularly breathtaking in the fall.

Blessed with beautifully clear water and plenty of top-notch fishing holes, the stream also features a swift current and tight bends that will delight experienced paddlers. The Jordan’s modest length makes it ideal for a morning or afternoon excursion, and if you’re like us, you’ll want to return to its waters again and again."
