Many think of Memorial Day as the unofficial start of summer, and many Northlanders were outside enjoying today’s beautiful weather.

Just a short drive South on Highway 53, the Brule River and the surrounding State Forest offer camping, canoeing and kayaking for the whole family.

“You come into the office, we sign you up, and we tell you exactly what to do. We’re here to explain the process from start to get start to end,” said Aaron Carlson, owner of Brule River Canoe Rental. “You drive to the end point, and we pick you up there in our vans or busses. We bring you up to the starting point of the river and you float down.

Brule River Canoe Rental offers family-oriented trips designed for canoers with skill-levels ranging from beginner to expert.

“Over the weekend we put dozens and dozens of people down and the they have had a blast,” said Carlson. “The river conditions are exceptional.”
