Indiana whitewater, Indian Creek

Montgomery county, Indian Road to Deer Mill section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     4.7 miles
  The natural beauty of Indiana and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. This stretch of Indian Creek in Indiana is 4.7 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II section. This stretch is mid length, it's good length for a morning trip. The average Indiana whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master than those in other states, so
    better not forget that rivers in this state are less demanding. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill
up quick. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with not too many other places for that. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Crawfordsville, as you can see on the road map further down. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors  
are great attractions for lots of people.
