Perhaps you like the excitement of kite boarding or jet skiing. Maybe you want to just float down a lazy river with your paddles propped across the top of your canoe. The pleasure is yours for the taking in the Petoskey Area. Whitewater excitement can now be found on Petoskey's Bear River. This mile long course is the only one of its kind in the lower peninsula. Rentals of kayaks and ducks are available if you want to give it a try.
