CHAMPION, Mich. (WLUC) - Looking for a little more adventure on your beach days? Look no further than Van Riper State Park's Water Warrior Island.

The island is made up of several floating slides and obstacles, just off the beach on Lake Michigamme.

It's the second year for the island, and although the weather may not have cooperated Friday, employees say, they think it's a great addition to an already great area at the park.

"To add to Van Riper, I think it's awesome. In addition to kayaks, paddle boards, and concession stand, I think it makes Van Riper a full park now," said Water Warrior Island Manager, Aaron Fulton.

The island is open seven days a week, opening at 11 a.m.
