The Chippewa River is a stream in Michigan that runs 91.8 miles through the central Lower Peninsula. The Chippewa is a tributary of the Tittabawassee River and is named after the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Nation.

Fun fact: in Island Park, the river flows completely around the park and creates a natural island in the center of the city!

The Chippewa River is perfect for a leisurely trip on the water. Canoeing, tubing, and kayaking are fun for all ages and skill levels.
