Wildcat Creek Natural Scenic River in Indiana

WILDCAT CREEK RIVER SEGMENTS
South Fork: Monitor to Wildcat Park

In low water (and for most of the summer) this section of the South Fork offers a better trip than the upper sections.

Distance: At 4.3 miles in length, this section requires about 2-3 hours to float.

River Features: Shortly after putting in the Middle Fork joins the South Fork from the right, and the creek becomes wider. A little more than halfway through the trip you will pass under the bridge for CR 100 N. The trip ends right at the confluence of the North and South Forks. The North Fork will enter from the right, and the Wildcat Park take-out is on the far bank (right bank of the North Fork). The take-out is a large sandy bank, and the trail up to the parking lot is easy to find.

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.
