The only waterfalls in Michigan's Lower Peninsula may not compare to what the U.P. has to offer (especially Tahquamenon), but they're certainly worth a visit. The site is well-maintained and the falls photo-worthy. And surprisingly, apparently you're allowed to wade into them! (Wasn't expecting that!)...More

I think the falls would be too rough for a three year old in a kayak.The water is quite fast moving and rocky. You would be better off to go to one of the beaches on Grand Lake or Lake Huron. There is a sandy beach with... More

My parents own a house near there, and if you want to talk about renting, contact me, but I have never camped in that area.
