Situated along the north shore of Clark Lake, Logan Creek is an undeveloped, isolated gem of Door County. The Wetland Kayak Tour is a peaceful paddle. You’ll kayak along Logan Creek, which is tucked away in the quiet side of the Peninsula. Its pristine waters are designated an Outstanding Water Resource. If you arrive early in the season, the banks of the creek are alight with the vivid yellows of the marsh marigolds and soft whites of the American starflower. The only noise you will hear along Logan Creek will be the wind through the forest, dominated by white cedars, white pine, black ash, yellow birch, balsam fir, and hemlock. Launch from our private location and within minutes the only sound you hear will be the occasional ovenbird, red-eyed vireo, black-throated green warbler, eastern wood-pewee, great crested flycatcher, rose-breasted grosbeak, and hermit thrush. A year-round habitat for waterfowl of all kinds as well. The paddle continues onto Clark Lake to the north shore of Whitefish Dunes State Park.
Once on the Clark Lake, the Wetland Kayak Tour becomes more free form, as you will be able to explore as much as you desire, including the option to get out of the kayaks for a hike around the Dunes, or along the Ridges Sanctuary property. A truly unique tour. A perfect paddle for beginners or early in the season when the winds are blowing.
WHAT TO BRING ON THE WETLAND KAYAK TOUR
A hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, water, natural insect repellent, and a smile. The creek is spring fed and remains cool all year round, so a long sleeve shirt would be recommended for the first portion of the tour. Jeans are not advised.
The natural area has additional seldom used hiking trails that are worth exploring if you have the time and energy. They are accessible directly from 5890 WI-57, Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235 (same location as Mr. G’s Supper Club). Kayakers will meet 15-20 minutes early at Penninsula Kayak Company, 6300 WI-57 in Jacksonport.
