Indiana whitewater, White River

Martin county, Hindostan Falls section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II(IV)     0.1 miles
Me and my buddy have done the East Fork of the White River a couple of times now from Azalia to Rockford. It is roughly 13 miles. Not sure why this is listed as difficult as it is not at all. The only hard thing about it is the distance. We have gotten through it in 3.5 to 4 hours each time. As of 2012 it has been slightly low but we got through it all the way without scraping bottom the second time and avoided most of the downed trees.
    Had a great time and there were a few decent rapids but nothing real exhilarating or steep. Make sure to bring some snacks and lots of water with you because if it is hot and sunny you will get hungry and very thirsty. Highway
65 will mark about 75% through and the bridge on 11 will mark roughly 85% and once you get to the train tacks you have roughly 200 yards before the take-out in Rockford, where a large public access site is state run and gets you out before the dam. Water was no more than 3-4 ft at any given time, but all in all a fun river! Says Anonymous

Hindostan Falls can be run during high water but must be portaged along the left descending
bank during low water. Says Jerry Hay

The description states that there is only .1 miles of paddling on the White River.  This is not the case.  The East Fork of the White River is a great paddling experience from Columbus, IN all the way to Shoals.  Contact Most HIgh Adventure Outfitters at www.mosthighadventure.com for details on East Fork White River kayaking. Says Steve Chafin

The Medora covered bridge committee will be sponsoring a Kayak fun race on the East fork of the White river in Medora,In. This event will take place in June 2010, date and time to be determined. E-mail me for further details perezuaw@aol.com Says Fabian Perez
