Manitowoc Harbor Out-and-Back to Manitou Park- August 4


We launch in the harbor in Manitowoc, but come off of the big water and up the Manitowoc River Manitou Park, where we land for lunch. Filled with sausage, cheese and various snack foods, we climb back into our boats and head back to the harbor.
