Paddling Guides For Michigan Rivers and Streams

Find access points submitted by our community for rivers and streams through out the state of Michigan.  The list below represents our BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal) for this site.  We’re hoping that with your help and the help of local businesses from across the state, we’ll be able to put together paddling guides for all of the rivers listed below.

To see a detailed description of a river and services around it, click on a river in the map or choose from our list below.  Only the rivers that we have information on will be clickable.  New rivers will be added to the site every week as we continue to grow.  You can help by writing a river detail page for a river that you know well or by adding a launch point to the map!
