Blessing of the Boats July 28th-30th, 2017

We look forward to our 2017 Blessing. The dates for this year are July 28-30, 2017. Plan now and clear that weekend! We had amazing weather, food, giveaways and of course catching up with our customers while enjoying a stellar weekend in Northern Michigan.

Bring the whole family!

Blessing at 9am. Meet & Greet with Food on Friday evening (July 28th)

as well as Saturday evening (July 29th) after the float!

If it floats, let’s go! All types, brands makes and models!

(You don’t need to own a Stealthcraft, but we’ll have many models on site to take a look at)


The Blessing of the Boats will commence at 9am at Baldwin Creek Lodge. Once the short Blessing is concluded, we’ll hitch up and head to Tippy Dam on the Big Manistee for group float of fun, fishing and good company.  Our staff will help shuttle vehicles. If you don’t have a State of Michigan permit (‘P’ on your plate) you’ll need to pay for parking.  Also if you plan on floating all the way to High Bridge you will require a Forrest Service Daily Permit which is an additional $5.  We will have food and beverages both Friday’s and Saturday with giveaways on Saturday back at Batckes Baldwin Creek Lodge after we finish up with the float.

Don’t Miss it! Call Batcke’s Baldwin Creek Lodge ((231) 745-4401 •
