Patoka Island Public Access Site


River Road
south of East Mt. Carmel, Indiana

Managed by Indiana DNR, this access site has a paved boat ramp and a roadside gravel parking area.

From the river, this access site is on the left bank at the downstream tip of Patoka Island. You may not see it until you have reached it or just passed it.


Looking out (across southern tip of Patoka Island) to the Wabash...

Looking downstream (see railroad bridge in far distance)...



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.
