Indian River Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 5 photos

Welcome to Indian River, my home for 3 months in 2004!

This place has been my home for the 2004 summer and all the people I've met here became my family! It's an awesome,quiet place to relax during a holiday! Make sure to stop by!

River trips on the Sturgeon

An incredible way to enjoy the magnificent up north Michigan nature is down the Sturgeon River. You can take an up to 5 h trip and you can choose for your watercraft a kayak, a canoe, a raft, a catamaran or a tube. Tomahawk Trails can offer all these to you and it's not that expensive either. Pack a lunch, relax, swim, you just have to be back at the livery by 6pm! You'll thank me later!


Burt Lake State Park

It has great , not too crowded beaches, a huge campsite in the forest and The Burt Lake Marina where you can rent speedboats, jetskies...It's a nice view over the Burt Lake.
There's also a Public Beach on the Burt Lake downtown, by the Police Station.The water it's deeper by the shore there so that's cool for the ones who want to swim. Enjoy!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet, green, watersports, not too crowded
  • Cons:Not much of a night life, except for the one by the bonfires
  • In a nutshell:Enjoy the sun and the water on a trip down the Sturgeon
