The Honor Trading Post is one of our go-to's when we are up on vacation on Platte Lake. It is 'tradition' for us to go get ice cream or pizza, visit with the owner Steve, shop for Platte Lake or Platte River logo clothing or a place to stop while biking. Steve and his staff are such kind people. We... More

We spent a morning kayaking the Platte river. My two boys, ages 10 and 12 kayaked by themselves for the first time. It was a very peaceful, easygoing trip. We saw a river otter which was the highlight for me! This was a beautiful river and great day of fun. Highly recommend.

We did the lower platte route, took two teens that had never been before and one that doesn't swim. The staff was very friendly and helpful, explained the route that we would take and what to expect. After you're checked in you drive your own car to the end point. You will need a national park pass for this. You... More

This event occurs within the Sleeping Bear National Park so be prepared to purchase a $15, 7 day pass, or a $30 annual pass for each vehicle entering the park. The passes are good for all areas of the park (Pierce Stocking drive, Dune climbs, etc.). Everyone at the Honor Trading Post was kind and pleasant to work with; all... More

If you are looking for a great easy and relaxing afternoon to spend with your family and friends. Then renting tubes from the Honor Trading Post to float down the Platte River is the perfect way to spend part of the day. The staff are friendly helpful and they have everything you need right at their little store. We rented... More

Everyone we met at the Trading Post was both kind and fun. They were good ambassadors for their business. There were about seven of us--five adults and two kids--and we all thoroughly loved this adventure. It was billed as a 2-hour trip up the Platte River, but turned out to be 2 1/2 hours due to Michigan's semi-drought. I for... More

It was very busy when we went and the fact we brought our own tubes seemed confusing but eventually everything got sorted. When it came to loading the tubes however, no one alerted them to us and we had to "show paperwork" (i.e. A receipt). It was also confusing when to get off and on the shuttle. In the end... More

We initially had a 10:00 am reservation for a trip on Thursday. When we got up- the weather called for rain in the afternoon. However by the time we got to the trading post (we were staying 45 minutes away in Traverse City) the winds had switched and there was a storm coming through. They recommended that we wait it...

We have a cottage on Deadstream Road and love the convenience of having the Trading Post down the street! Everything from ice for the cooler, renting tubes/bikes/kayaks, buying pizza, water shoes, snacks, drinks and even sweatshirts (when you come to visit and find yourself under packed for the cool Michigan evenings!)... this small place has what you need!
