Called ahead as it is getting late in the season. The owner made sure he had a shuttle driver ready for us when we arrived. Great, peaceful kayak trip down the lower Platte. Less than a two hour kayak trip which is perfect for us....More

Such a great store, and staff- very professional! We did the Platte trip through Loon Lake and enjoyed every minute! Saw turtles, a beaver, good eagles, the water was warm and clear- and the end at the sand dunes was spectacular! An awesome family adventure!

We did a trip down the upper Platte river. The kayaks were new and in excellent shape. The van driver was nice and we were picked up on time. We had a great afternoon!

Very friendly staff started off the trip down the river. After filling out the paperwork, you drive your car to the launch point, drop off any extra passengers from your car, and follow the van to the end. Park there and the van takes you...More

Platte river is shallow in most spots so it was easy enough even for the beginner. We tubed down and we were highly disappointed that we had to walk a rocky path with seven small children, all of us struggling to carry the giant tubes...More

I believe the Trading Post is open after the Labor Day weekend; but it's advisable to call ahead and confirm. Their number is (231) 325-2202.
