Arranged for two teens to take the float trip on the lower Platte River out to Lake Michigan. You follow the post van to the parking lot at the end, then the van transports rafters back to the point where they put in on the river. (I dropped the kids off, so parked at the beach 2 hours later to wait on them). The kids enjoyed the trip, even though the river was low due to little rain. It was also very crowded, being the 4th of July weekend, but the tubes still floated just fine, only went a little slower. The kids said the water was clear and clean, and they could see all kinds of fish. They loved the trip. The Trading Post personnel were friendly and helpful, even during a busy day. One note re: the parking. Depending on which lot you park your car, you may need to purchase a Park Pass for the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The pass is good for 48 hours and can be used at any park along the lake shore. It was $10 bucks and well worth it--happy to help support keeping this beautiful area available for future generations.
