White River from 116th St. to Broad Ripple Park
Trip Difficulty: Easy
Join us on this fun and leisurely Indy area paddle.
We will launch at the public access site on Wapihani just off of 116th Street and Eller Road, then paddle to the take out at Broad Ripple Park. This is about 10 miles in length and will take less than 5 hours if we paddle leisurely and take a snack break.
We will organize a group shuttle for our vehicles. Plan to arrive at the launch site at 12:00pm, unload your boat and gear and prepare to shuttle our vehicles to Broad Ripple Park, departing at 12:20pm. Shuttle drivers will return to the launch site and we will launch at 1:00pm.
Bring a lunch and we’ll stop along the river to eat. After the paddle we’ll find a restaurant in Broad Ripple for dinner.
Suggested items to bring: Wide brimmed hat, sun block, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, large sponge, bilge pump or container to bail out water, water, snacks, weather radio, towel, change of clothes, water shoes, paddling gloves, rain gear, bug spray, safety whistle, drybags, Ziplock bags, camera, binoculars, rope, headlamp or flashlight, a sense of adventure, and a good dose of humor.
For clothing try to use something other than cotton, especially if the weather is cool. Polypropylene or polyester are good choices since neither holds water and they wick moisture away from you.
12:00pm: Arrive at Launch Site.
12:20pm: Shuttle vehicles depart for Broad Ripple Park.
1:00pm: Shuttle drivers return and we launch on the water.
