This facility will allow you to test your angler skills on the Big River. This area produces some of the best small mouth bass fishing in the state. So, get your boat ready and your line wet and enjoy a wonderful day on the beautiful Big River.


If fishing is not your chosen form of recreation, but a float trip interests you, you can launch at the boat ramp and take a long, relaxing, scenic 18.3-mile trip down to Morse Mill Park. This is a long trip, so start early to assure that you finish before dark.  PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED!


NOTICE: The Big River is a swift moving stream.  Strong currents produce dangerous swimming conditions.  Life guards are not on duty.  SWIMMING AND WADING IS NOT RECOMMENDED! 


Fee: None, State fishing regulations are imposed.
