We had a great experience Kayaking the Manistee River this weekend. We had our own Kayaks so we went to Chippewa Landing in Fife Lake, Michigan (just a short distance from Traverse City) and left our car at their landing and for $30 they drove us and our Kayaks up river for a very nice 18 mile (3.5 hour) float. The river is very wide and free of fallen trees to navigate around. The water is flowing at about 3-5 mph and there are no heavy rapids to worry about. There are many sandy spots along the shore to stop for a break or lunch. The staff at Chippewa Landing were great and very helpful. When we landed four people met us at the shore and carried our Kayaks to our car for us. They were all great!
