GPS:  N39.05022  W94.81661
River Left

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 to Edwardsville River Front Park will be directly ahead of you.

Access Info:
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.

Float Info:
The next access is one mile downstream at Wilder Park at river mile 17.6.

The following downstream access is at the Turner Bridge about 5 more miles downstream at river mile 9. Be aware of the WaterOne coffer dam 2.5 miles downstream at river mile 14, 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.
