St. Joseph River - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Difficulty: Moderate
Submitted by: wil3k View Profile

Description:

Put in at Seitz Park just below dam on east side of river cement steps lead down to river for easy entry. Easy paddle for first 2 hours to St. Patrick's Park on East side.

The park is about 30 min. past toll road bridge. After that the river widens and slows. This is only reason I'd rate this as moderate is that this section is slow water and pretty much constant paddling; take out is at boat launch just above dam at Niles, MI.

Fees:

none

Directions:
