About Us

We are a mostly a bunch of Yoopers......

But most importantly, we're a family. We work hard and play harder. We camp, fish, hunt, hike, bike, snowmobile, ATV, boat and paddle every chance we get, and we're able to do that because of you.  We take that seriously, and that is why it is our goal to make sure you have the best vacation possible here in DA Yoop!

It all started in 1995, we moved here from the land of da trolls and in 1999 we started AuTrain Sports. It was a local sports shop offering canoe and kayak rentals for the AuTrain River and bait and tackle (and of course some fishing stories) for da Big Lake and AuTrain Lake.  The store took a break for a few years during the recession as we got into cabin rentals and kayak rentals on the AuTrain River. In 2017 we opened UPVACATION, and with it came DA YAK SHAK. Although the focus is mainly on canoe and kayaking our area, we hope to get people out fishing again. That has slowed way down over the years as the shift in this area's tourism is geared toward sight seeing and paddling and not so much fishing like it was in the past. However the stories are still alive and well, and we make up new ones everyday, so if you want to hear some, feel free to stop by and hang out with us!
