Sullivan County among new boat ramp sites in Indiana

Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Public Access Program staff

have been renovating and constructing new ramps across Indiana’s

waterways and water bodies.

Those include the newly renovated ramp along the Kankakee River in

Shelby, which previously was difficult to use due to built-up


The ramp’s new orientation should prevent the problem from reoccurring

and allow boaters to access the river year-round. Ramps at Green

Valley Pond Public Fishing Area and Daredevil Pit at Chinook Fish &

Wildlife Area also received some needed upgrades this summer.

Renovations are underway for the Lake of the Woods and Koontz Lake

Public Access Sites in Marshall County and Riverview Public Access

Site in Sullivan County. A new canoe/kayak launch along the Big Blue

River in Knightstown and renovations for Golden Lake and Fox Lake are

also on the program’s agenda for later this year.

DNR staff said they look forward to continuing to provide quality

access to Indiana’s waters through these free-to-use sites. Find a

public access site near you on the DNR’s “Where to Fish” map.
