Fountain Point Rowing Camps


Sessions closed for the 2022 season. Stay tuned for 2023 LLRC camps! 

All participants row on beautiful Lake Leelanau out of Historical Fountain Point Resort on the northern end of South Lake Leelanau. We have the ability to row over 17,000 meters south or over 12,000 meters north. That’s over 10 miles in one direction and over 7 miles the other! Very few lakes in the state can compare to the distance and protection from wind offered by Lake Leelanau.

Recommendation for room or cabin reservation:

Camps are open for people who want to learn the sport of rowing and for those who want to improve their rowing development.
Minimum age is high school or older. 15+
