Every Michigan camping experience should involve a canoe trip, right? Well, several regional rivers that wind through the Silver Lake area make fitting that canoe trip in easy. If you prefer your own craft for the trip, personal kayaks can be rented too. Or if you just want to sit back and let the current take you, a river tube will be right up your alley.
