Knop Lake Access Site

Location: The Knop Lake Access Site is at the Knop Lake Public Fishing Site located on County Road 650 South. The sign at the entrance tends to blend in with the trees, so the entrance is easy to miss. Upon turning into the Knop Lake area stay left at the first split in the road, then at the clearing take the second road to the right (by the Knop Lake Access sign) and go down the steep hill to the large turnaround at the river. (Do not take the road that stays straight because that is private property.)

Knop Lake S.F.A. is comprised of 50 acres north of Co. Rd. 650 S near Pyrmont. Enjoy fishing, canoeing (creek and lake), picnicking and restrooms. No motorized boats allowed. Canoe access is on the left bank.

Parking: There is parking for about 20 vehicles at the turnaround by the river. There is no parking allowed on the grass.

Path to River: There is a short carry down medium grade rock/dirt terrain to the creek.

River Access: There is room to load/unload 2-3 boats at a time. There is plenty of room to linger while dealing with boats or shuttling the vehicles.

There is no camping at the Knop Lake Public Fishing Site, and off-road vehicles are not allowed. The access site is operated by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

Important: The river is constantly changing. Hazards like log jams and tree falls will come and go, so always be ready for them. Riffles 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.
