Rental Rates

Our rental equipment consists of Michicraft & Grumman Canoes, Old Town Single Kayaks, Old Town 2 person Kayaks and our Tubes are all livery grade vinyl.

Lower Platte River

Gentle flowing river with easy gradual turns. This is a great trip for the whole family or the beginning canoers. It truly is for all ages and abilities. Total trip time takes 2-2 1/2 hrs and ends at a sandy beach with a beautiful picnic area and modern restroom facilities. You will get out of the river well before it dumps into Lake Michigan. This is where your car will be waiting for you.

cooler-tube*For those with small children or who don’t have a lot of time we offer a 1 hour Tube trip. This is at El Dorado Park, which is down river from the primary tube trip. On this trip you simply get out of our shuttle and you are right at the waters edge to begin your tubing. You still finish at the park, just before Lake Michigan. Cost is $12 per tube

* You must be 10yrs of age or older to operate a kayak on your own.

*From May until the middle of August all tubers must walk 200+ yards down a gravel road ( carrying your tube and anything else you want to take with you) to get to the fish weir. This is where you get in to the river and start your float trip. Foot wear is recommended.               

Reservations are recommended…..especially in July and August to avoid disappointment.
