Big Mike's Canoe Rental

Big Mike’s Canoe Rental, formerly Carl’s Parkview Acres Canoe Rental, is located in it’s original location directly across from the entrance of beautiful Rifle River State Park in Lupton, MI. The park is home to 7 lakes, 4300 acres of wilderness, abundant wildlife, and the headwaters of the Rifle River. The first ten miles of the Rifle, a Michigan designated “wild-scenic river” winds through the park while a multitude of tributaries feed into the waterway. The Rifle River is a friendly host, averaging 18-24 inches in depth, slow moving and therefore easy to navigate for beginners, families and seasoned paddlers as well. Join us for a memorable trip on the Rifle River.
