My husband, 10 year old son, 12 year old daughter and I camped at Holland State Park for a long weekend last summer. We decided to rent kayaks from Macatawa Boat House one afternoon. Once we got there my husband and daughter saw another family try Stand Up Paddle Boarding and thought they'd try it as well. My son and I rented a tandem kayak. The rental area is located on Lake Macatawa which is connected to Lake Michigan by a channel. Once my husband and daughter felt comfortable on their Stand Up Paddle Boards we decided to head towards Lake Michigan. We made it almost all the way to the lighthouse before we turned around and headed back. What a fun, affordable way to spend a couple of hours on the lake!

Such a great little business on beautiful Lake Macatawa! Everyone was so helpful! We had never done SUP and they took the time to show us. We went back multiple times to kayak and canoe as well! Can't wait to go again this summer!
