The KRCRF focuses on the day-to-day maintenance and long-term care of five public access sites to the Kalamazoo River, including Saylor’s Landing, Angler’s Bend, Paddler’s Grove, Ceresco Green, and partial support for Calhoun County’s Historic Bridge Park. Each site provides a unique outdoor experience while offering safe, legal, and perpetual public access to the Kalamazoo River for canoeing, kayaking, tubing, fishing, and other recreational pursuits.
KRCRF board members make several visits to the river access sites each year, offering insights about the use and condition of the sites. The KRCRF appreciates input from residents along the river and the many canoeists and kayakers that use the river. Board members have reported that the original site investments are wearing well, and the ongoing maintenance has resulted in attractive settings that draw many visitors each year.
