A Few Tips For A Good Time

Canoeing is blast, and we want you to have a positive experience with our canoeing rental service. That's why we're letting you know ahead of time that...

  • We send a shuttle upriver every half hour or when full.
  • We require reservations for weekends in July and August.
  • We charge a small fee for transporting your personal equipment.
Although we allow coolers and alcohol on canoe trips, please don't bring glass bottles or friends who turn into "river jerks" when intoxicated. Read the FAQ page for details.

Sun's Out, Paddles Out

Our section of the Big Muskegon River is well-suited for paddlers of all skill levels. Carving through high banks and low tree-covered areas, it offers beautiful scenery at every gentle bend.

On your river rafting trip, you can enjoy the views of pine, oak, maple, beech and aspen trees along the shore or reflected in the smooth water. Keep an eye out for majestic bald eagles nesting nearby.

Don't forget to lather on sunscreen, because you'll need it on the 2 to 4.5-hour trip. Contact our canoeing rental service in Newaygo, MI today to book a trip.
