Northwoods Resort Canoe and Kayak Rentals

N7070 Autrain Forest Lake Road
Au Train, MI 49806


About Us:

Our canoe & kayak trips can begin at the shores of Northwoods Resort, or you can opt for a shorter run, being dropped off at the first bridge downstream. You have the option of getting picked up at the bridges, or canoe all the way to the beach at Lake Superior. Pack a lunch and your camera!

We have trips from 3 to 5 hours for a nice leisurely paddle down the river. We will take you to the North Bridge, our "take-out spot" where you will leave your car in our parking area, and then go to the South Bridge where we will help you launch your canoe and get you all set-up for your river trip. Just leave the canoe at the north bridge when you finish your trip and your car is right there waiting for you after an enjoyable day on the river.

Our longer trip takes you from the South Bridge to the mouth of the AuTrain River at the Lake Superior sandy beach.
