Class I Carp River, MI

Rock Rapids to Rd 3458 Bridge

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.

Best to launch downstream from Rock Rapids; these rapids are dangerous even during high water and are hidden by a blind corner. Park your vehicle and launch from one of the primitive campsites. River is narrow and brushy. River
