Enjoy the waterways in Elkhart County.

See a whole new side of Elkhart County from a kayak or canoe, or get out for a stroll along the Elkhart Riverwalk. Locals love to paddle the stretch of the Elkhart River between Elkhart and Goshen, where the waterway alternates between rural tranquility and the excitement of friendly hellos from the riverbank.
