The Inland Waterway is Michigan’s longest chain of rivers and lakes. Nearly 40 miles long, the Inland Waterway, which is located in the Northern Lower Penninsula, runs through Pickerel Lake and Crooked Lake, the Crooked River, Burt Lake, the Indian River, Mullett Lake, the Cheboygan River, and finally into Lake Huron. The Inland Waterway runs right through several wildlife reserves, protected wetlands and marshes. There is plenty for everyone to see and do. Whether you're a nature lover, a sportsman or just love being on the water. This is a trip that is definitely worth taking.
