Just minutes from downtown St. Joseph and the Benton Harbor Arts District, you can explore beautiful wetlands on a rental kayak or stand-up paddleboard and paddle the Paw Paw River through Harbor Shores, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.
Prefer not to reserve your rental equipment in advance? You’re welcome to drop by to rent, but please note that your selection may be limited – or not available at all – depending on demand.
Our Paw Paw River kayak and paddleboard rental site is located just outside downtown St. Joseph, Michigan, and the Benton Harbor Arts District, next to Renaissance Athletic Club, and 90 minutes from Chicago. Please note that you must pay to park in the Graham Avenue boat launch parking lot; the City of Benton Harbor charges $5 for 3 hours or $10 for all day parking. You also have the option of parking somewhere else and walking in.
