The Manistee is amazing - with soft, gentle currents and a meander through the forest - lots of wildlife and little nooks and crannies to explore from your canoe or kayak. I hear the fishing is darned fine!

Lovely for a Quiet Paddle

This is one of the reasons why we live here. It's always a fun paddle, but especially in the Fall, with the leaves turning colors.

Spent the night on the river!

We docked at the municiple marina along the river downtown. It's a beautiful river and likely very beautiful year round (we were there in August). It has a nice riverwalk which lets you enjoy it from the start of the mouth at Lake Michigan all the way to Manistee Lake.

Manistee is a very clean and friendly town with lots of water. The manistee river is an extremely versatile waterway. Good for canoeing, kayaking, boating, or excellant fishing.

Riverwalk

This is a nice place to visit. It was adjacent to our hotel. We have to be able to walk down a fair amount of steps to get there. We walked our dog there in the evening. Many fishing boats docked there. There are also opportunities for chartered fishing boats there. It is free to visit and nicely kept.

A great slow moving river, perfect for a kayak trip, or fishing. You'll see an abundance of wildlife!

And when you have a successful day on the river you have an awesome meal

Very good fishing, canoeing & kayaking and hiking. A beautiful section of the North Country trail runs along the river through Manistee County.
