  • Very good fishing, canoeing & kayaking and hiking. A beautiful section of the North Country trail runs along the river through Manistee County.  more »
  • The Big Manistee River is slower paced opposed to the Little manistee. Both are nice clean rivers for spending a day a float. Great photo ops and eagle sightings.  more »
  • Went to Tippy Dam. BEAUTIFUL river and so cool seeing Salmon trying to go up the current!! Water is clean and glistening. If you fish, this is the place!!  more »

  • Have only paddle on the upper Manistee river. Up stream from US-131 to the head waters. Very beautiful river with alot of challenging sections along the way. The river and scenery changes numerous times throughout that long stretch of the river. From fast shallow water to slower deeper and back to fast and so on. Very enjoyable and relaxing river. Pictures are from Sharon bridge to Rainbow Jim bridge. October 9, 2017
