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.
