Me and my family played this mini golf course. It was pretty good -- like most typical mini golf places. Not quite as good as Pirate's Cove, but you'd have to go to Petoskey for that. There were a lot of water hazards, which made the game interesting.

This staff is great and informative. The tubing and canoeing trips are great for all ages. You really must pay attention to conditions on the water such as branches, logs, etc. that can slow you down.

This was a challenging, but super fun course! Each of the 18 holes was unique. We went with our 5 and 7 year old daughters. It was definitely difficult for them, but they had a blast. If you are competitive, this is the course for you! The fourth hole is a little tricky (and should be modified in my opinion).... More

We took our 9 year old nephew here one weekend when he was staying with us. It's a fun little putt-putt course, and the store with it has lots of touristy nick-nacks, and a subway. Nice little place to play, and we thought it was a pretty good value. Something to do while visiting Indian River.

My sister did the ropes course. It is approximately 10 feet off the ground and loads of fun. Totally reccomend this place for families and couples. Overall a great place to spend quite a bit of time. Lots to do and the staff is absolutely wonderful.

This place is awesome to rent canoes to go on an family adventure. We went on the 3 hour canoe tour and the river ran fast and there were many obstacles. We only flipped once but were laughing the whole time! Enjoy! By the way, my family has experience kayaking.

I'm not sure why this place is coming up only as a golf course. We found this place at the recommendation of someone who lived here so we knew what we were looking for. THEY OFFER SO MUCH MORE. We went specifically for the tubing tour of the Sturgeon river. For a modest price, they offer life jackets, tubes, and... More

A family favorite for mini-golf for as long as I can remember. Check out the kayak, rafting or tubing trips on the Sturgeon River.

I took my 7 yr old tubing; it was fun but more work than I had planned. I had never been to Indian River and thought it was a float trip, but I was constantly looking for how to push off the next tree/bush that we were going to run into. It took a long time for my 7 yr... More
