Canoeing & Kayaking
Canoeing and kyaking are also popular activities along the Cass River. A NEW handicap accessible floating canoe/kayak launch was recently opened in Heritage Park. This site provides an opportunity to enjoy the river upstream of the dam in Frankenmuth.
For those paddlers that want to enjoy miles of river, consider launching in Vassar or Tuscola and paddling downstream to Frankenmuth. Improvements are planned for launch sites in Vassar and Tuscola to improve accessibility to the river for paddlers.
Paddlers can also launch small boats by hand below the dam on the south side of the river. From there, the next access point is Beyer Rd. Please be aware that this section of river (downstream of the dam) is shallow and may not be passable with a boat during low water levels.

There are also some commercial boating operations on the river that provide tours for the public. For more information on these opportunities, please contact the Chamber of Commerce.
