Beaver Island is a scenic paddling destination that offers diverse scenery including sandy beaches and historic lighthouses with lots of opportunity for birdwatching and wildlife viewing. Much of the island is privately owned but there are some areas of state land that are open for exploration. Paddling around the entire island is a multi-day trip and camping is allowed on the tracts of state land which require a free permit. More experienced paddlers looking for additional challenge can also explore the nearby High Island and Garden Island which also offer camping but navigating the additional waters to these islands should only be attempted by more advanced paddlers.
