FLOAT BATTLE CREEK

Why float Battle creek?

Battle Creek has a number of options when it comes to recreating on water bodies within the city. 

Gougac Lake is a 353 acre all sports lake located within 5 minutes of the downtown. The Battle Creek and Kalamazoo rivers meet within the Downtown area with the confluence of the rivers just beyond Washington Ave between Hamblin and Jackson street. All three bodies offer unique water play opportunities within an urban environment. The water quality is good and nature abundant. 

Please join us in celebrating these local assets by frequenting them and utilizing them in both passive and active ways. Below you will find programming related to each. We will do our best to enhance the use of these natural resources as programs and facilities evolve over time. 

The Small Business Development team has partnered with Better Together Floats for Kayak rental. There are 10 kayaks available to reserve for use, if you do not have your own. Depending on the event, depends on the cost.
