June Barrett Public Access Site


south of SR 66 toll bridge
New Harmony, Indiana

Managed by Indiana DNR, this access site has a paved boat ramp.

This site also has a gravel turnaround, a large gravel parking lot, a picnic table and trash cans. Access to Wabash River Greenway Trails is just under/north of the bridge. (There is a canoe launch area about a 100 yard carry down one of the trails.) Also just north of the bridge (in the big white building) is the art museum, which has restrooms. It is an easy walk into town for food and supplies.

From the river, this access site is on the left bank just downstream of the SR 66 bridge.

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.
