The easy winding current of the Bear River allows paddlers and passengers a chance to see beaver, turtles, ducks, and other wild life.  

 

Birdwatchers, bring your binoculars as the banks are inhabited with scores of wild birds including a Blue Heron who never fails to return every year.

 

If it's fishing that interests you bring your poles.  The Bear River houses Rainbow Trout and Brook Trout.  The season opens in April and runs into September.

 

To insure your safety, a canoe is provided with coast gaurd approved cushions.  Life jackets are provided for the little ones.

 

So bring the entire family, get away from it all and enjoy some of the relaxing rustic beauty Northern Michigan is noted for.
