Indiana Water Trails Guide
The information previously located on this page came from the 1987 Indiana Canoe Guide, but was removed because it was largely outdated. Listed below are a few resources that may be helpful for those looking to navigate Indiana’s water trails provided by partner agencies or non-profits in the state.
The DNR is working to provide more accurate information regarding all of Indiana’s water trails in the future. Please help us build a better page by taking our brief survey so we can understand what type of water trail information is important to you. The survey is 15 questions and should take less than five minutes.
