St Joseph River

Few things define The Bend like the St. Joseph River. After all, South Bend takes its name directly from the bend in the river as it turns north toward Michigan. It’s a defining feature with restaurants and trails alongside and plenty of activities to do in or on it. 

Do you want to follow the river on a bike trail? Paddle down in it in a kayak? Take on some whitewater rapids? Snag some fish? It’s all available here.


South Bend Mishawaka offers some of the best fishing in the Midwest. Discover what the St. Joseph River and surrounding lakes have to offer.
