Jean Klock Beach is one of Southwestern Michigan’s hidden gems; a long, beautiful beach that rarely sees crowds. We offer kayak and paddleboard rentals to take advantage!
How does it work?
Arrive at the beach site during open hours and rent whatever equipment you and your group would like. You’ll then paddle for an hour or more and return to the same place you started when finished.
Reservations for smaller groups are not necessary or accepted. For groups of 10 or more, please request a quick quote to set up a reservation. We can handle very large groups – up to 70 people! Get more info on large group outings here.
Where is it located?
Jean Klock Beach kayak & paddleboard rentals are located at Jean Klock Park in Benton Harbor, Michigan (just over the bridge), just minutes from downtown St. Joseph.

What to bring?
Dress for the weather; come prepared to get a little wet from the drip of your paddle and be out in the sun. Lightweight, synthetic clothing is best. Sunglasses, sunblock, and a hat are a good idea. Your camera has a possibility of getting wet, so bring a water proof bag. Sorry, no alcohol allowed!
