Rainbow Resort Cabins and Canoe Livery
Northern Michigan Canoeing
Welcome to Rainbow Resort Cabins and Canoe Livery on the quiet side of the AuSable River in Mio, Michigan. As your premiere Northern Michigan Canoe and Kayak Livery, we offer rentals along with a host of trips ranging from 1 1/2 hours to 3 days in length.
Take a couple of “sick days” or enjoy a weekend getaway to explore the beautiful waters and shorelines of the AuSable River!
|Call us today to plan your day, weekend, or week with us. Our Northern Michigan Kayak and Canoe Livery can accommodate all of your adventure needs. We have all the gear you'll need to experience Michigan's great outdoors!!|
An early morning paddle is our favorite; there are so many more birds and forest critters along the water's edge when you're the first one on the river.
| Rainbow Resort can provide guests of all ages with an adventure perfect for you, your family, and friends!
Our River Trips:
Tubing- When it's too hot to canoe the AuSable River, try tubing! Relaxing, refreshing, and sometimes invigorating, tubing allows you to put your feet up and breathe easy. We have a two and a half hour tubing trip from Parmalee Bridge to the Whirlpool Landing. The Rainbow Resort Canoe Livery uses only dual-chambered commercial rental tubes - with and without bottoms. Commercial cooler tubes are also available for $12 each. We can transport some types of personal tubes and the cost is $15 per person.
