        This north woods eco-tour experience is great for the entire family from 3 to 90 years young.  The river is calling, the weather is great and the marsh marigold's are in abundance, contact us to plan your eco-tour adventure by paddling the Jordan River or a Jordan Valley geo-cache hike.  Come renew yourself with a relaxing trip down the first river in Michigan to be designated "wild and scenic".  We are close enough for a day trip, or stay locally and explore the famous Jordan Valley for memories that will last a lifetime.

        Join us for a full moon paddle trip ending on the shores of the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix with a  bonfire, hotdogs, s'mores and a cold drink, watching the stars and exchanging a campfire story or two.

        We are dealers for both Old Town Canoe & Kayak and Ocean Kayak.

        Our store has the paddling gear you need for an afternoon or multi-day adventure, including paddles, P.F.D.'s and drybags, also many gifts from canoeing, kayaking and rafting T-shirts to picture frames for that memorable river picture, as well as snacks and cold beverages.

        We love this valley and the river that runs through it.  During our slow time, you may just see us in a canoe, kayak or raft on the river, or hiking on one of the many trails the valley has to offer.  We are here to help you plan and enjoy your next adventure, so stop by, email or call for assistance.
