Sturgeon River (Prickett to M-38)

10.25 miles

July 2022

Scenic Ottawa National Forest land borders this nice stretch of the Sturgeon River.  Although there are some Class I and a few Class II rapids, they're all fairly easy to sail through even for newbies.  There's no development once you leave the put-in at Prickett Dam until just before you reach M-38.  Plenty of spots to camp if you want to rough it out there too!  I hit it when the Prickett gauge said 460 CFS which was a little low.  A bit higher and the rapids would be that much more fun.
