The Platte River

This gentle river at the southern end of the Sleeping Bear Dunes is great for tubing, kayaking or canoeing and finishes at Platte Point Beach on Lake Michigan

Most people start their journey where the river crosses Highway M22.  If you are taking a tube and want a shorter trip you can take Lake Michigan Road a bit closer to the lake and get in the water at the Eldorado stop.  A tube float from here usually takes about 1.5 hours to reach Lake Michigan although there are plenty of places to pull over and extend the trip.
