Kayaking & Canoeing

River Adventures: See a whole new side of Elkhart County from a kayak or canoe. 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. Paddle the Millrace Canal in Goshen and you might come across an outdoor concert, join in on the “full moon float” or portage over to Goshen Brewing Co. for a beer.

If traveling with your own gear, you can park and launch at Congdon & Hermance Parks
(Bristol) or the Six Span Bridge (CR 17, Elkhart).
