This trip offers the best scenery of Blue River and remote wild Southern Indiana.

Trip takes a minimum of 5 hours.

More info

This trip is geared for paddling enthusiasts. You will enjoy all Blue River offers including rapids, islands, sand bars, nature, wildlife, cave views, and springs with the added two bonuses: more rapids and more of a work out. Sightseeing varies based on river conditions and time of year.

Your journey will end at the ruins of Rothrock’s Mill. The take out is 300 feet on the left past the only bridge you go under. Once you have completed your trip, a bus will pick you up based on the coordinated pickup time. The last pick up is 6pm.

Conditions and trip duration varies with water level and season. Depending on water levels and season, launch time closes between 11 and 12. Because of the length of the trip, it is important to begin this trip early in the day.

Guest services will provide your pick up time during registration on the day of your trip. Launch times are between 8 and 11am. Paddlers who arrive after the last pick up at 6pm will be charged $20 per boat per hour.

Please Note:

Stay within the banks of the river, respecting private property
