Whether you want to explore the coast of the Dunes in a kayak, push the limits of your fitness on a stand-up paddleboard, or just lounge around in a good old-fashioned river tube, we’re here to help. No matter which you choose, you’ll be enjoying the stunning scenery of the Sleeping Bear Dunes from the comfort of our Beach Club, where a cold drink and a warm welcome will await your return. One thing our resort does not provide are power craft. Unfortunately, we’ve found that renting them from the Beach Club disturbs some of our waterfront guests. Fortunately, we have friends who can help you with that, too.
