Edwardsville River Park Access Ramp
River Mile: 16.6
GPS: N39.05022 W94.81661
From I-70 take I-435 south and exit on Woodend Road. Turn right and go 2 miles to the corner of Woodend Road and 9th Street. The entrance Edwardsville River Front Park will be directly ahead of you.
The access is a lighted, large blacktop parking lot, with picnic tables and portable toilets. The boat ramp is concrete and well grooved for traction. Ramp extends 220 feet in length and 32 feet wide. Ramp projects into the channel 40 feet at a 12% grade and is self-scouring. A special bank fishing access is provided to the east of the ramp. This allows bank fishing that will not interfere with boat launching.
The next access is one mile downstream at Wilder Park at river mile 17.6. Be aware of the WaterOne coffer dam just east of the I-435 Bridge. There is a portage path that must be used on river left – avoid the low water notch on river right. First upstream access is Cedar Creek Access Park at river mile 26.1.
