Equipment Rentals

The average portage distance between lakes in Sylvania is 1/4 mile. Light weight canoes will make your trip more enjoyable. We have light weight canoes in aluminum, Royalex and Kevlar. Aluminum canoes have keels, Royalex canoes are quieter and tougher, and Kevlar are lighter and more fragile and are the Sylvania Wilderness standard canoe.

A deposit of $20 for each watercraft will hold your watercraft rental. Upon arrival, the deposit will become your security deposit, refunded when you return the equipment after your trip. A deposit of $100 is required for the complete outfitting package. Cancellation notice must be given 48 hours prior to your arrival for a deposit refund.
