Burchfield County Park canoe and kayak trips offer park visitors scenic landscapes as well as wildlife viewing opportunities. Visitors have the option to rent canoes/kayaks from Burchfield’s boat house and ride up stream or be dropped off at one of three different access points along the Grand River: Bunker Road, McNamara, or Eaton Rapids. The Riverbend Natural Area is located just 15 minutes out from Burchfield County Park and makes for an excellent stopping place for canoers and kayakers who wish to explore the park’s beautiful nature trails.
Canoe and kayak rentals are available from mid-May to Labor Day. In-park rentals are $6 per hour and trip rates vary by location. Canoes and kayaks are available on a first come first serve basis, however reservations are encouraged for weekday trips and groups using nine or more canoes.
