Shel-Haven Welcomes You

Shel-Haven Canoe Rental is located on the beautiful Manistee River, just 8 miles west of Grayling on M-72.  We are open daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day and on the weekends in spring and fall.  Any other time by appointment.

The Tompkins Family and our experienced crew welcome you.

The Manistee River is very clean, the scenery is beautiful and the trips are the most peaceful you will ever experience.  The wildlife is abundant – deer, ducks, beaver, mink, otter, turkey, and often the majestic bald eagle with their nests close by.

The Manistee River averages 2 to 4 feet deep and the current is moderate.  It is fast enough to carry you with minimal paddling, but slow enough to make it perfect for even the most inexperienced.

The Manistee offers some of the best trout fishing you can find. The season is open from the lst Saturday in April to the last Saturday in September.
Fishing Guides are available.

Campfire  Wood.

We are not  an RV resort, we are not located on any lake or river, we do not have a pool or planned activities for your children. We do not have Wi-Fi. We encourage turniing off the technology and truly enjoying the great up north with your friends and family. Have real conversations, tell ghost stories, roast marshmallows over a campfire, relax and rejuvinate. There are so many  fun things to do in the area.

We are located on the ORV route to the trails. We are one of the few campgrounds that will allow you to ride from your site to the trails. YES! You can ride to the trails directly from your campsite, no need to transport your ORVs to another location to ride.
