Lansing Rowing Club is an open club dedicated to providing facilities and companionship to people who want to row. We welcome anyone with an interest in our sport.
We row on the Grand River in Lansing, MI, a beautiful stretch of quiet water.
Wildlife of the natural kind is often seen along the river, including blue heron, Canada geese, and deer. In addition to the beautiful, peaceful rowing environment, the benefits of rowing include an aerobic and weight-bearing workout without the pounding joint stress endured with other sports.

Our boats are owned by the club for use by club members. Our fleet includes
single-person boats for beginners, intermediate and advanced rowers.
We also have double, pair, quad and four boats. We share eights with the MSU boathouse during coached beginning and more advanced rows.
For information on these types of boats, see WHAT IS ROWING?
Lansing Rowing Club PROGRAMS include summer Learn-to-Row and Intermediate/Advanced Rowing classes. In addition, we offer open rowing sessions three times per week during the season. Club members enjoy companionship and a shared interest in the sport of rowing.
Our boathouse is nestled along the Grand River in Grand River Park, Lansing, MI.
For directions to the park and more information about our facilities, go to FACILITIES.
