Family Owned Business, Stay for the Putt-Putt

Took a nice 2.5 hour canoe ride down the river, took in a game of putt-putt after on an old-fashioned course. Staff were happy to help with everything.

I've been using Hunt's Canoes for over 20 years - this family run business is simply fantastic to deal with and I couldn't imagine using anyone else in town. I do two annual "canoe trips" with friends, and our last visit was in July. Like every year past, they were incredibly welcoming and made sure we had an excellent day... More

I have never been treated so rudely and condescendingly by a business owner. There was a little confusion as to if we could use the shuttle for our own kayaks, which we couldn't because they were so busy. But the woman working the counter, whom appeared to be the owner or manager was extremely rude about the whole situation. Accused... More

The staff at Hunt's offers a customer service experience like no other. They are exceptionally accommodating & will assist you and your family/friends in having a wonderful time on the Au Sable River.

This is a must-do if you are in Oscoda in the summer. Fantastic views as you come down the Ausable River in a canoe. Beware the distance thought - Foote Dam is the longest ride, and can take you 5-6 hours if you not experienced rowers in a canoe. For a 2-3 Hour ride start off at The Whirlpool. Hunts... More

My family has been going to Hunts for canoeing since the late 1990s and have always had fantastic experiences. Our recent trip was no different. They offer a variety of trips and transport to the launch points. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We would recommend to anyone looking to canoe/raft/kayak down the AuSable.

Time and time again I've come back to Hunts because I enjoy the people who work there. They'll give you great information on the area while taking you to the drop off point on the river.
