Love Michigan’s Water While Rafting Streams & Rivers
Our amazing state is saturated with water. We have the Great Lakes, over 11,000 inland lakes and ponds and of course rivers. With so much water there's so much more we can do. Go swimming in some of the best lakes in Michigan of check out the deepest lakes in Michigan that aren't one of the Great Lakes.
Michigan residents like to do all sorts of things on the water. Fishing on the inland and Great Lakes is a popular thing to do. Sailing on the Great Lakes is fun, heck, you can even do that on Lake Lansing. Sailing is fun and it's easy to learn.
One popular thing that Michigan folk like to do for relaxing and fun is rafting. Tubing down a river with your friends and family. Canoeing with your kids. Perhaps a cooler in tow on a tube behind you. I've wanted to do this for a long time but haven't made the time to make this happen. One thing I want to be sure of is that the river or stream is clean (yeah, no polution, oil slicks, rotting animals) before I take a dip.
The Lansing area has a couple of vendors for tubing/canoeing and there are a couple more that I will highlight. As I near 50 years old I should quit making excuses and try something new this summer, like tube rafting down a river in our gorgeous state. We have two locations close to mid Michigan.
