Big Mike's Canoe Rental

Rifle River Recreation Area - West Branch/Ogemaw County TVB


»» Big Mike's Canoe Rental is located at 2575 Rose City Road - Lupton, Michigan 48635 about 5 miles East of Rose City

If the art and county fairs didn’t convince you to take a trip to Ogemaw County maybe a trip down the famous Rifle River will be your cup of tea. It was off to Rose City where we would meet with the biggest canoe rental owner in the county and his name of course is Big Mike at Big Mikes Canoe Rental. Big Mike promised us the best canoe trip with Michigan’s Largest Canoe outfitter, Mike Dunn.

We were off and ready for an exciting day on the Rifle River. We had canoes and Kayaks supplied by Mike and he was also helping a father and son team who brought their own canoe. Everyone was in a great mood in anticipation of this trip. Soon all the canoes were in the water and we were ready to roll or should I say paddle.
