Wildcat Creek Natural Scenic River in Indiana

WILDCAT CREEK ACCESS POINTS
North Fork

Reservoir Spillway Access Site

Location: The Reservoir Spillway is located on CR 400 E. Preferred creek access is available at the SE corner of the road and the river (upstream of the bridge on the right bank). Alternate creek access is available at the NE corner of the road and the river (upstream of the bridge on the right bank).

Parking: There is room for 5-10 vehicles north of the bridge, along the narrow east shoulder of CR 400 E. Do not park in front of the gated, paved path to the river south of the bridge.

Path to River: The preferred path to the river follows the gated, paved road segment at the SE corner of the bridge over the river. Upon turning into the woods the paved path becomes a gravel path. To the left of the gravel path are several spots to put in boats. The best spot is close to/under the bridge. (A side note: this gravel path is the path used to portage from the reservoir to the creek.)

The alternate path to the river (at the NE corner of the bridge) is definitely not ideal. It is best to lift boats over the guardrail then carry them down steep, rocky terrain along a rutted path to the river.

River Access: There is room to load 4-5 boats at a time along the gentle rocky bank.

Important: The river is constantly changing. Hazards like log jams and tree falls will come and go, so always be ready for them. Riffles will appear and disappear based on water flow levels. Do not attempt boating on this or any river during high water. Please be safe, respectful and responsible on the river.
