Lake to Lake Trips

Enjoy Manistee Lake and Lake Michigan in one trip! Start your trip at Insta Launch Campground, located behind our office. The drop in begins at the end of the Manistee River and runs into Manistee Lake. Paddle the channel through downtown Manistee, parallel to River Street and see the sites from a view that most people don’t. Your trip ends in Lake Michigan at either 1st Street Beach or 5th Avenue Beach. You can choose to either leave your car at the beach at the start and we’ll drive you back to the starting point or we’ll pick you up when you’re done and drive you back to your car. Trip length is 1-2 hours.

Manistee Adventures offers several trip lengths, put-in, and pull-out options. Our most economical trips are those that end at Insta Launch Campground adjacent to our office. Trips ending at other locations requiring boat pick up will be charged an additional $30 per group for groups renting 3 or fewer boats.
