Kayak, Zip-Line, and SUP with Door County Adventure Center
Stop by the waterfront home base of DC Adventure Center to meet their professionally trained staff and try your hand at a new hobby. The improved and exciting four-span zip line takes you straight through our wild forest canopy, using our repurposed original bar silo as your starting point. They offer a variety of kayak tours and rentals, including guided tours of Lake Michigan and the Mink River Estuary. For a totally new sensation, hop on one of their stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) and enjoy the lake from an elevated view.

Hiking Trails and Sand Bay Park and Beach
One of our township’s hidden gems, Sand Bay Park and beach with it’s several-hundred feet of sandy swim-friendly shoreline is just a short walk from the resort on our well-marked trails. Bring the towels and sunscreen, because here’s where you’ll find swimming, boardwalks, picnic and play areas, and public restrooms. Too much to carry? It’s a short drive around the block.
Marina and Shoreline Access
If you have a passion for water sports, you have to come to Rowleys Bay Resort. From canoeing and kayaking to sailing and windsurfing, you won’t find a better place in Door County for aqua adventures on Lake Michigan. We also offer the most direct access to the Mink River, one of the few unspoiled estuaries in the Great Lakes. The river flows through coniferous swamps, a large marsh and empties into Lake Michigan at Rowleys Bay.
Rowleys Bay Resort is steps away from 700-feet of wild Lake Michigan shoreline. Part of that includes access to graduated shoreline for canoe and kayak launching, the public marina, even an old fishing dock that used to host the Washington Island people ferry. Bring your own canoe, boat, SUP, or windsurfer, and launch from our public marina and graduated shoreline. Better yet, rent one from Door County Adventure Center! Explore the gentle marsh area of Rowleys Bay and protected wilderness of the Mink River Estuary. Rowleys Bay is the perfect spot for aqua adventures of all types – even fishing straight off the docks!
