Wildcat Creek Natural Scenic River in Indiana

South Fork: Dayton to Fairfield

It has been recommended that this section of the river (from Dayton to Monitor) should be canoed only during high flow. However, remember that only experienced canoers should canoe during high flow.

Distance: At 1.7 miles this section generally takes less than 1 hour to float.

River Features: The creek runs alongside CR 800 for a while and then cuts through a series of tall clay bluffs. The bluff continue for the length of the trip. The creek twists and turns, and passes under the CR 200 S bridge just before the take-out at Fairfield Access Site. Just after the bridge be looking for a large sandbar on the right for the take-out.

Hazards: Logs in or across the creek may be encountered seasonally, and a portage may be required.


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.
