FALL CREEK ACCESS POINTS
Above Geist Reservoir


County Road S 650 W Bridge (in Madison County)

Parking: The northwest corner of the bridge offers parking on the flat grassy shoulder of the medium traffic road, with room for about 4 or 5 vehicles.

Path to River: There is a generally level 50 yard carry to the creek, but make sure to stay close to the large stone rip rap near the end to stay on the road easement property.

River Access: There is room to put one or two boats in the water at a time, and the weedy river bank is not a great place to linger. However, there is "loading room" and "lingering room" for several more boats and people in the shallow side channel of the put-in.

The southeast corner of the bridge also offers good access, with a 100 yard carry to the river. The path is over mostly level grassy ground next to a fence, though you will have to do a short carry over some large stone rip rap near the end. The put-in itself is by the outlet pipe of the nearby waste water treatment plant. There is parking for about 6 vehicles along the slightly angled, grassy shoulder of the road.

Important: The river is constantly changing. Hazards like log jams and tree falls will come and go, so always be ready for them. Riffles will appear and disappear based on water flow levels. Do not attempt boating on this or any river during high water. Please be safe, respectful and responsible on the river.
