Lake Michigan Kayaking Trips

Lake Michigan, second-largest of the Great Lakes, is known to local paddlers as Lake Superior’s somewhat milder sister. Typically less capricious in nature, she is also warmer and more placid, with beaches more sandy and inviting than those of her rough and rocky sibling.

Still, her 22,000 square miles of surface can be roiled by wind and wave, so kayakers should not take her lightly when exploring her numerous bays, islands, and the largest freshwater dune system in the world.
