Steve is a great guy, friendly and helpful. He rents kayaks and canoes and offers groceries, pizza and ice cream.

This seasonal business is really appreciated in the local area. They're a "party store" kind of place that also rents kayaks & canoes. The thing we appreciate most is the pizza. Freshly handmade by the owner, with tasty sauce & toppings. These are really nice folks - too bad it's only open 5-6 months a year!

This place has been here on the Platte River and hosts canoe/kayak/tubing down the river to Lake Michigan. It is a classic up north feel place like it should be.

We had a group of 12 adults and 15 kids (aged 3-8) so we had a number of double kayaks, canoes and tubes to accommodate our group. The tubes were used to tow along some of the kids. All of the kids were required to wear life jackets (which the Trading Post can supply). The Trading Post sells sandwiches, pizza,... More

We took out 2 double kayaks and a canoe for our group of 7 - 78, 75, 42, 41, 9, 7 and 4. We drove to the office off Deadstream Road and signed in. They typically leave on the hour, but sine they weren't busy we started around 1:25p. We drove to the Platte River Picnic area to put in.... More

If you want two hours of peaceful rest and a super slow pace on the laziest (and shallowest) 'river' - then this is the way to do it. We followed Cody driving our kayaks down to the river's end to park our car in the National Parks car park and then he gave us a lift back to the start... More

Took my son and his friends kayaking. Went with Trading Post after reading reviews of the other place. Trading Post was excellent. The owner was friendly& informative. Filled out paperwork quickly. The store sells hoagies, pizzas, and other things you might forget at the last minute. Followed their van to the take out point, parked our cars and then rode... More

My kids have been canoing, I haven't. I read reviews, etc., and decided to go with this place. I called ahead and talked to the owner, he gave me lots of great info and tips, so we knew exactly what to expect. The canoe place is part of a small store in the middle of a residential area. When you... More

Great experience for our family during a family vacation up north. Beautiful scenery as you travel in a tube down the Platte River to Lake Michigan. Equipment was in great shape. Already planning on going on during this year's vacation. One thing to remember, bring a waterproof bag to keep things dry. We didn't bring a camera on the first... More

Our families first kayak trip ever was a great experience. Took advice of a friend and rented thru the Trading Post instead of the more heard of livery down the Platte. The workers at the Trading Post were friendly and more than helpful. Equipment was in good shape. All of us, me, my wife, 11 year old son, and 8... More
