west end of Washington St.
Managed by the Fountain County Parks Board, this access
site has a paved boat ramp.
The park also has picnic areas, access to Trails, and
a large dirt/gravel parking lot.
From the river, this access site is on the left bank
about 1/4 mile downstream of the US 136 bridge, and a
little upstream of a railroad bridge.
Some info sent in by a reader concerning water levels:
| If the river is 4.5 or higher a small boat will have no problems between Covington &
montazuma. If one has a larger boat like a 21’ pontoon with a 90 hp similar to the one
my dad had you better know where the channel is when the level drops below 6’. There are a few creeks that are only accessible when the water is up. I posted a pic on flickr of one creek just north of my dads place that I visit when the river is 16 feet or higher. But I dont recommend that a novice boater attempt to navigate the river when its that high.
