Jordan River Fun

Swiss Hideaway and Canoe Livery



Swiss Hideaway Canoe Livery is a family owned and run business and has been in its current location since 1970, making canoes, kayaks and tubes available for all ages, whether you are a beginner or not.  Families are always welcome.

The Jordan River is a beautifully scenic river with lots of twists and turns.  From Graves Crossing the river starts out swift, with a lot of turns, that makes it a fantastic run.  Past Old State Rd., it slows a bit.  The current speed varies from 2-7 mph and the river depth varies from 1-6 feet. This gives you a well-rounded and fantastic ride.  Whether you are looking for excitement or relaxation it is an enjoyable ride for everyone from young to old!  One to 4 hours trips are available.


We are located at 1953 Graves Crossing Rd., Mancelona, MI 49659, which is half-way between East Jordan and Mancelona off M-66. We are open 7 days a week from 9am until 4pm and our phone number is 231-536-2341.  Appointments are always welcome, but please cancel if you are unable to keep it.  We supply life vests and cushions for all ages and we have various sundries available in the office.



Let's Go!
