Indiana Water Trails Guide

The online Indiana Water Trail Guide is based upon information published in the 1987 Indiana Canoe Guide by the DNR. It is organized by stream and includes a general map, locations of put-in and take-out sites, and descriptions. The water trail descriptions in the guide are generally divided into day-long trips, but enough information is provided to plan longer or shorter trips. The times indicated for each trip are for a "float" during normal water levels in April, May and June. A "float" is drifting with the current with little paddling to propel the canoe downstream. The rivers that are included in this guide generally offer the most pleasant and rewarding canoeing experiences. Most of the information in this online guide is unchanged from the 1987 printing and you should not rely completely on the descriptions when planning a canoeing trip.
