Rollway Resort, LLC Canoe Trips
Rates are on a per-canoe basis and all arrive back at Rollways or at your option, we will pick you up at Loud Dam. Charges include all equipment and delivery to drop off and pickup if needed. The U.S. Forest Service has asked that our canoes and tubes be off the water prior to 6:00 p.m. and that we launch no earlier than 10:00 a.m. at the Thompson’s Landing launch site. Please plan your trip according to the departure times and be on time to avoid disappointment.
The AuSable River is 1 to 3 feet deep and the current runs about 6 to 8 miles per hour, so it is safe for the whole family.
We do not assume responsibility for canoeists’ safety as that depends upon the individual. Overnight camping is free along most sections of the river. There are some sections where a permit is necessary.

Rollway Resort, LLC Kayak Trips
We also rent Kayaks. We offer two models:
The FRENZY is a “sit on top” style. Compact and stable with a center keel for tracking. The short length makes it easy to maneuver. Ideal for flat water cursing on the river. Excellent for fishing, cruising or just floating in the sun.
The OTTER is a cockpit style that is comfortable, stable, light weight, easy to paddle and fun to use. The Otter’s superior design tracks better and paddles easier that other kayaks in its class, all the while retaining excellent stability for paddlers of all ages. The high back seat offers exceptional comfort. The larger cockpit allows for easier entry and exit.
We are now excited to announce we are renting non-motorized fishing boats with trailer, we supply oars and life jackets. $50.00 for 24 hrs., $200.00 weekly (7 days), $30.00 for pick up and delivery if needed.
