Big Bear Adventures is a fun, family owned business specializing in outdoor recreation. Big Bear Adventures is located in Indian River, just 30 minutes north or Gaylord, between Mullett and Burt Lakes surrounded with wildlife, pristine rivers and forests. Check out the Guided Winter Raft Trips.


With an average descent of 14 feet per mile, the Sturgeon River is the fastest river in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula! Not whitewater, but exciting and challenging with its quick and often tricky current, along w/ leaning trees, stumps, and logs (especially when navigating through numerous narrow passages and sharp turns!) The current does most of the work, but it’s up to you and/or your partner(s) to maneuver your watercraft down the crystal-clear, spring-fed stream, as it winds its way mostly through beautiful state forest.

Snowshoe & Cross Country Ski

Strap on a pair of today's lightweight snowshoes and you'll quickly see why snow shoeing has become one of the fastest-growing winter sports. If you can walk, you can snowshoe! Great fun for the entire family!

Try Cross Country Skiing & discover the exhilaration of gliding over the snow on a well-groomed trail, along rolling, wooded terrain and dense pine forest.
A wonderful, low impact activity for the young to the young at heart!  Equipment is available for rent at Big Bear Adventures.

Big Bear Adventures, now offers guided ATV rides and they also rent ATVs at their location.
