ACCESS POINTS:
St. Francisville Public Access Site

 
   

St. Francisville, Illinois

This access site has a paved boat ramp and dock. (The dock looked a little decrepit as of September 2007.)

The access site also has grass parking, picnic tables, riverside benches, a covered picnic pavilion, trash cans, portable restrooms, and apparent camping. It is also a short walk up the hill to food, phone and supplies.

From the river, the boat ramp is on the right bank directly across from the Clark's Landing access site. It is about 3 miles downstream of an old railroad bridge that is now a toll bridge for cars.

Important: The river is constantly changing. Hazards like log jams and tree falls will come and go often, so always be ready for them. Even islands and riverbends come and go over time. Riffles and sandbars will appear and disappear based on water flow levels. Do not attempt boating on this or any river during high water. Please be safe, respectful and responsible on the river.
