Bowers Harbor to Power Island Professional Review and Guide

"Power Island, also known as Marion or Ford Island, is a 200-acre island that is maintained as a park by Grand Traverse County.

The island has a dock, swimming beach, hiking trails through a maple/beech forest, and a small islet on the northeast tip that has five campsites. Sheltered deep in the west arm of Grand Traverse Bay, this route provides a great day trip or overnight trip for beginner paddlers."

Our paddle from the public launch to Power Island and back was 7 miles per my GPS. There was very little other boat traffic on the lake, in fact when we got to the island there was no one else there. Back on the mainland, in Bowers Harbor, we stayed at the Bowers Harbor B&B just a 1/4 mile from the launch. There are several wineries and nice restaurants nearby. This was a fun day trip
