This a great starting point for a Fish River fishing or paddling trip. The water is spring fed cool year round. It has good access but I do recommend a cart because it can be crowded with swimmers. We like to use it as a drop off point to go down the river. It's 2.75 miles to Boone Lane Park and 6 miles to the Honey Road launch where you can leave a vehicle. There is usually always people here so it feels very safe. Its does have a good current so going upstream from here would be a little hard.
There are a lot of sandbars along the way so you can take as long as you like in the summer.
