Is the price of gas making you blue?
You don’t have to drive far to have fun!
Experience wilderness canoeing close to home!

Come and canoe or kayak the beautiful Huron River with us.  Located less than an hour’s drive from Detroit in Southeastern Michigan, the scenic Huron River offers paddlers a chance to view nature at its best.  The gentle current of the river allows beginners and experts alike the opportunity to enjoy its sights.

We have been a family-owned and operated business for over 50 years, with over 200 canoes and kayaks available for sale or rent.  For years we’ve been the popular choice for church, school, and community and scouting organizations.  Our ACA and American Red Cross certified instructors are available to turn and ordinary outing into an educational and rewarding adventure!  With our location within State Recreation Areas we’re able to provide access to both modern and rustic campground facilities.  Consider a multi-day program that combines instruction, a river trip and overnight camping!

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our services, and how we might help you enjoy a wonderful day on the river!

We are a family-owned, family friendly business!

Dogs are welcome too!

Please observe state park law and keep your dog on
a 6 ft leash and observe all other polite doggie etiquette!  :)

We are a family business and we understand these are difficult financial times.  Our rental prices are still the same as they were in 2007!  We hope this will help your family enjoy time together on the beautiful Huron River.  Save on gas!  Enjoy wilderness canoeing close to home!
