Old railroad bridge on the Lansing River Trail in downtown Lansing


There are several excellent locations to put your kayak or canoe in either the Red Cedar River or the Grand River. Kruger Landing at Aurelius Road is a popular spot and Crego Park is a great place to paddle around a small lake. Crego also offers assisted entry with its kayak/canoe lift. The Middle Grand River Organization of Watersheds (MGROW) maintains a list of access points on the Grand River.

You can also go through a livery service such as River Town Adventures and they will take care of everything but the paddling.
