Boating & Water Sports
Lake Erie and the Grand River offer fantastic locations for boating and watersports of all types. Many sections of the river are ideal for boating but the section between the Cayuga bridge and Caledonia is not recommended for power craft due to shallow depths. River access points can be found in the fishing guide.
