Frequently Asked Questions
Walk-ins are always welcome but we do recommend making reservations, especially for weekend adventures. A reservation helps to assure the availability of your preferred watercraft and allows us to register you quicker during busy periods. If you’d like to check on availability or make a reservation, please call 231-894-4209.
What are the scheduled departure times for various trips?
What type of watercraft do you suggest for my group?
All our canoes are 17′ long. One-person kayaks are easy to maneuver. Two person kayaks are a unique experience. Rafts are large and won’t tip over, perfect for young families and older persons. Up to 6 persons will fit in a raft. Tubes provide a totally relaxing day on the river.
How many people can we put in a canoe?
Our canoes will comfortably accommodate up to three adults. A maximum of four persons may be allowed if comprised of 2 adults and 2 children the age of 8 years and under.
What is the river like?
The Nationally Designated Scenic White River is a pristine river that flows through state and national forests, so you will be in a nature setting during your entire adventure. The river averages between 2 – 4 feet in depth, and the water flows 3 – 5 miles per hour over a sand bottom. The water does carry sediment, but it is void of any pollutants.
What should we wear, pack?
Wading is a favorite activity so wear appropriate river shoes to protect your feet! Waterproof cameras, snacks, water and sunscreen are recommended. Keys, wallets, non-waterproof cameras, cell phones and any other valuables you don’t want to lose should not be taken on the river. Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes!
