2022 is Lois’ sixth year in the Kayak Rental business after a career in sales, marketing, sales management & all the lessons of life! She is passionate about kayaking after taking her first trip from D Ave. to Plainwell and from Plainwell to Otsego several years ago. Since then, she has kayaked in various Michigan lakes and rivers.

“We have such a beautiful clean resource in the Kalamazoo River and I want people to enjoy it as much as I do”. Our goal is to make kayaking easy for you!

Aiden and Angel are returning this year after their first year as full time college students.  Sam and Landon are local students that are returning to serve you.  Elly is our newest team member, also a local student.  Welcome Elly and welcome back to the rest of the crew!

Creating opportunities for local students to work is a passion and a dream for Lois who herself found her career working summer jobs in during high school and college.

We will strive to develop a business that is safe, affordable, dependable, and of course fun to deal with. We welcome your suggestions as we continue to hone the operations of the Plainwell Kayak Company.  This is all still true after 6 years!  Our customers are so understanding and helpful; we thank you for your encouragement and suggestions.
