Water Fun Information

Ready for a vacation where fun comes in waves?
Smile. You’ve come to the right place.

One of the things that makes our resort communities of Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Bay Harbor and Boyne City such a popular summer destination is all the water recreation available.

For starters, there is Little Traverse Bay with its miles of gorgeous Lake Michigan shoreline. Walloon Lake is the quintessential Up North lake; and USA Today has rated Lake Charlevoix runner up for "America's Best Lake."

So come and catch a gentle breeze and sail across the bay; leap into the refreshing surf; stroll the beach for souvenir Petoskey stones; paddle board, jet ski or kite board; or cast a line in a stream or one of our inland lakes.

Our video, Where Fun Comes in Waves, will give you an up close look at all that’s here. And you can find the info you need on rentals, marinas, tours and more on the Water Sports section of our website.
