Carrollton Road Bridge Canoe Launch


Carrollton Road bridge (NE corner of bridge & river)
between Burrows and Delphi, Indiana

This update is from the Wabash & Erie Canal Association in Delphi:

Carrollton Bridge over the Wabash River north of Delphi is practically finished. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! Contractor onsite manager "George" has been wonderful to work with. He has helped us (the Canal Association) to clear out brush on the northeast corner and place some of the historic cut stone blocks. A boat ramp has been installed but will only allow foot access (with canoes) from the parking area. Otherwise the ramp is too steep because of the old original footer of the first bridge (1838) that kept from making the grade lower. Stone blocks guard from someone trying to drive down the ramp.

From the river, this access site is on the right bank just upstream of the Carrollton Road bridge.

Apparent access site, possibly private...

Evidence of how high the river gets...



Important: The river is constantly changing. Hazards like log jams and tree falls will come and go often, so always be ready for them. Even islands and riverbends come and go over time. Riffles and sandbars 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.
