Baldwin Travel Guide

Baldwin is the place for you if you love water sports. Located in Lake county, Baldwin is on the Baldwin River just three miles north of where the river meets Pere Marquette River. Baldwin is known for its water recreation, you can canoe, fish and visit the famous Shrine of the Pines, an unusual collection of pine furniture.

Things to Do in Baldwin

When in Baldwin the river calls, whether it’s to jump in a canoe or a tube. The tranquil waters of the Pere Marquette River are enticing (although cold!) and you can stop for a picnic lunch at a sandy spot along the banks. Choose to rent paddles and kayak in a group or tubes that enable you to float leisurely along through the breathtaking Manistee National Forest.

The Shrine of The Pines might sound odd, and it is, but in a good way, especially if you’re a craftsman, carpenter or historian or even if you just love a bit of interesting furniture. All the pieces were hand made by a woodcarver with a huge creative spark.

Best Time to Visit Baldwin

The nicest time to enjoy the river activities in Baldwin is in the warmer months of Spring and Summer.
