The staff at the Trading Post were friendly and helpful explaining how the shuttle works and offered help getting started at the river drop off point. We had a 2 person kayak that was comfortable (they had back rests). The river flowed slowly and didn't...More

My husband and I did the 3 hour Upper Platte kayak experience. River was fast moving but manageable. We stopped along the way to enjoy the boxed lunch from Honor Trading post, tasty! The staff was very friendly and accommodating overall a great day!

We are glad you enjoyed your trip. The Upper Platte is my personal favorite for paddling. Thank you for your feedback!

Dealing with the staff at the trading post was very pleasant. Very nice people with very good instructions. The customer service was great. That being said, my 3-star rating is due to being on the river and our family's experience. The river itself barely moved...More

Lazy day floating down the river. Excellent service and good sandwiches too. Best part is ending at Sleeping Bear Dunes!

Sleeping Bear is definitely a treasure and a great way to wrap up the trip along Lake Michigan. Thank you very much for your review!

We had previously used Riverside for our trip down the Platt River. We very much now prefer Honor Trading Post after our experience with them. They were friendly and helpful and didn’t charge extra for the “larger” size kayak. They also were not concerned with...More

Tubing down the Platte River is a lot of fun! But The Honor Trading Post was sloppy. Our first problem was rope. I was assured they had rope to use, so we could tie our rented tubes together, even after I was adamant that I...More

I believe the Trading Post is open after the Labor Day weekend; but it's advisable to call ahead and confirm. Their number is (231) 325-2202.
