Class I Kalamazoo River, MI

Kalamazoo River Water Trail (North / South Branch to Albion)

The Kalamazoo River is the heart of the Kalamazoo River Watershed Council’s focus. The river provides the greatest amount of paddling opportunities in the Kalamazoo River Watershed. The river is about 123 miles long from the confluence of the North and South branches of the Kalamazoo River in the town of Albion, Michigan. The lower section from below Lake Allegan to Hacklander Landing is designated as a state Natural River and offers some very nice paddling with minimal development. In general, the river features enjoyable recreational paddling once you get away from the cities and towns that border the river. (Kalamazoo River Watershed Council)
