Class I Carp River, MI

Rd 3308, MacDonalds Rapids to Carp River Campground

The Carp River, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, flows through predominantly forested lands with little development along its way. The river flows through the Mackinac Wilderness Area.

Road may be hard to find but has a large parking area and numerous launch points. River is very deep, straight, and easy-going - excellent for beginners. Takeout upstream of campground bridge as it is regularly log jammed and impassable. River
