  "...coming back again", "Friendly", 'GREAT", "Helpful"

     A:  Feedback we've received from over 20 entries and a few conversations - but don't take our word for it, see paddlers' comments on the "Canoes & Kayaks" page...

Rent a canoe or kayak & paddle down the St. Joseph or Paw Paw Rivers – or venture out onto the Big Water – Lake Michigan!  

Fish (Call and we'll get you set up)

Experienced Charter Fishermen for Hire!!  Floating docks make vessel entry and exit easy.   Clean bathrooms and showers and one of Southwest Michigan’s best fish cleaning stations (along with record catches of tasty salmon, bass, perch and more).  See what dates work out best for you…

Dock (Dock your watercraft at Fisherman's Way Marina)

Dave claims to have found a paradise here.  Every November he marks his calendar daily in anticipation of getting back onto the water!  Dave and the rest of us look forward to cooking on the grill, cool refreshments & visiting with friends.  Docking your Boat / Zodiac / Wave Runner here is convenient to lake Michigan and the St. Joseph and Paw Paw Rivers.
