Wildcat Creek Natural Scenic River in Indiana

South Fork: Fairfield to Monitor

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 4.5 miles this section takes about 2-3 hours to float.

River Features: The twisty and turny creek cuts through some tall clay bluffs at the start of the trip, then continues through mostly wooded land. Look for the Monitor take-out on the right bank just before the SR 26 bridge.

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.
