Here are 8 of the best places to kayak in Metro Detroit

With the pandemic affecting our social lives indoors, now is a good time to get outside and on the water in a kayak.

Here are eight of the best places to go kayaking in the Metro Detroit area:

Stony Creek Metropark

The Stony Creek Metropark is not only a good place to bike but it is also a good place to go kayaking. The park offers a smooth ride down the Stony Creek Lake and allows you to really take in the scenic views. It also offers you a chance to take a break at the oasis called Winters Island and even stop in Baypoint Beach where you can rent a kayak for $10 an hour.

Clinton River

Offering a white water experience, the Clinton River offers a little more adventure. The river is divided into three sections which are the Headwaters, best for a tranquil journey through the wetlands, the Lower River, where slow-moving wakes push kayakers through dense forests to finish at Lake St. Clair, and the most difficult section, the Heart of Clinton.

The Detroit River

Located in Downtown Detroit and Downriver, the Detroit River offers views of the Downtown skyline, Belle Isle, Peche Island, Fisher Mansion, Detroit Canal and Grosse Ile. The calm stretch of 28 mile water includes popular launch spots such as Grayhaven Mooring Facility and Fisherman’s Marina, both of which are only a short trip from Belle Isle, Peche Island, and Fisher Mansion.
