We are conveniently located on the Chippewa River just off of West M-20, allowing you to start a trip after work and end conveniently at your car. The section of river we service winds through miles of natural forest lands in Sylvan Solace, Deerfield and Meridian Parks. We are proud to help maintain this river and have debris bags on hand for paddlers interested in helping while they paddle.

Paddling is a lifetime sport accesible to a wide variety of ages and abilities. Purchasing a fine water-craft can bring you a lifetime of fun, exercise and escape.
