Our kayaks were designed with the novice paddler in mind. They are very stable, easy to learn, and a great way to introduce youngsters to paddle sports.

“We have kayaked many times using Baldwin canoe rental. Love this family owned and run business. Always so friendly and knowledgeable. Pere Marquette is great river to kayak. Some bends but not too difficult. Lots of places to stop and swim.”


“This place is awesome!! If you schedule a pickup where you’re camping no one has to worry about driving back. They take us on a short bus. The bus drivers, that we had anyway, are nice and like to joke around.”
