After our scenic drive, we headed to the southern part of the park to look for a campsite for the night. We picked out a site at the ranger station and ran across a sign for canoe rentals. Ah yes, perfect way to kill time before dinner.

Back on the river, making a portage around a fishing weir. After passing the weir, we saw a few salmon running up river, doing their fall run. I believe they were Cohos and Steelheads.
River running up against dunes, meaning Lake Michigan is not far.
