Both canoeists and tubers flock to this attractive, easygoing northern river on summer weekends. It possesses a mild current, long sections of sandy riverbed, and plentiful swimming holes, all of which make the stream a good option for families and other groups looking for an undemanding float. The Rifle is also attractive, winding past pretty woodlands, summer cottages, and quiet farm fields for much of its length as it makes its way to its outlet at Saginaw Bay.
Or if golfing is your thing, check out Huron Breeze and Red Hawk golf courses they are both excellent.
The Saginaw bay is only 5 miles away and you can drop you boat in the bay at Great Lakes Shores Marina and catch walleyes, perch bass and pike.
