ACCESS POINTS:
Shamrock Park

 
   

Off of Wabash Avenue (about a mile south of SR 26)
southwest of Sycamore St. and Sanford St.
Lafayette, Indiana

Managed by the Lafayette Parks Dept., this access site has a concrete boat ramp. Shamrock Park also contains a large enclosed dog park, playing field, playground, and covered pavilion.

From the river, this access site is on the left bank, separated from the main channel by a small island (depending on water level). It may be hard to access in lower water.

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.
