New for 2016 - Fishing Kayak Rentals

     Check out the above video for a preview of the kayaks available at The Poplars. Contact us for more information.

The Poplars Resort is now offering an eco-friendly option for your fishing vacation! As of 2016, we have two fishing kayaks available for rent (see below for descriptions), in addition to our canoe.

Enjoy the new trend of kayaking with your fishing rod, while staying at The Poplars. Let the kayak take you to all the quiet back bays, inlets, and pads, where motors would normally restrict your access. A whole new world of fishing possibilities will open up to you in your quest to find the best spot on Newboro Lake.

Excellent fishing is available within a short paddle of the resort. However, included with your rental, The Poplars will tow you and your kayak to another spot on Newboro Lake to allow you to drift/paddle back to The Poplars at your own pace.

Please note that rentals are only available to guests staying at The Poplars Resort.
