The Keweenaw Water Trail Association was formed in 1995 to promote the area's extraordinary paddling opportunities. Consisting of canoeists and kayakers, the association has sponsored recreational, educational, and conservational activities.

A non-profit organization, the KWTA relies on the generosity of volunteers and donors to maintain and improve the water trail.

Mission Statement:
The KWTA promotes the responsible and safe recreational use of the Keweenaw shoreline. We are dedicated to preserving the scenic beauty and increasing the low impact use of Lake Superior coastal land. We will work to educate the larger community about historical, cultural and natural heritage of this unique waterway.
