The property on which the launch sits was gifted to the South Haven Recreation Authority in 2017. In part, the project was funded by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Jennifer Sistrunk, executive director of the South Haven Convention & Visitors Bureau says,

We’re excited for both visitors and locals to enjoy paddling down the Black River this summer. We’ve been looking forward to seeing this come to life for quite some time and we’re delighted that the kayak launch is now open to the public.

A ribbon cutting for the Phoenix Kayak Launch was help on Friday, May 17.
