Portage Paddle Sports - Houghton

On the Portage Canal in Michigan's UP

Home / Regions / Portage Paddle Sports - Houghton


We have two locations on both sides of the Portage Canal, this one in Houghton and the other in Hancock. With these locations we work with both cities to maximize use of the provided beaches, volleyball courts, playgrounds, grills and pavilions. We have a store front at each location where we provide the local community fun and affordable recreational activities as well as tourists an enjoyable and easy way to take in all the cities have to offer either from the water or the paved bike trail. 

Our recreational offerings include; single, tandem, family kayaks, single and group paddle boards, cruiser bikes, and float tubes. We have equipment to accommodate any experience level and age. Everything you need is provided in the low rates. In addition to the recreational activities we have over 18 flavors of Jilbert Dairy Hand Scooped Ice Cream and food options. 

Our goal is to be the summer destination spots for both the local community and tourists who are looking for a place to spend their summer days.
