Deep River Water Trail

Running 16 miles from Lake George before emptying into Lake Michigan, Deep River’s width and calm current allows for easy navigation and provides an excellent trip for paddlers of all ages and skill levels. Enjoy a very natural paddling experience surrounded by deep sections of woods, grasslands, and marshes. Deep River provides a wonderful journey along undeveloped and unspoiled shorelines and is considered by many paddlers to be the area’s hidden gem.
