Scenic and Exciting Rafting Trips

Our trips run on the last stretch of the crystal-clear Sturgeon River, where it slows down, offering an easier yet thrilling experience. We own the “Put-In” point, just 2 miles away on paved roads, and the journey ends at the beautiful Burt Lake State Park. The park features over 2,000 feet of sandy beach, perfect for swimming and playing, and a large picnic area with playground equipment under towering oak and pine trees. The rafts promote teamwork and are nearly impossible to tip over – a real relief for group leaders and parents!
