Boone's Landing along Big South Fork, Union, Ky

Who wants to meet for a before lunch paddle and then a late lunch at Jane's Saddlebag . There is a $5 boat ramp fee for the ramp at Boone's Landing . I aim to be there at 11am and start paddling by 11:30.


I will be calling Boone's Landing for more information on water flow speed etc to make sure this is suitable for beginners!

    Thanks for leading us. I had a wonderful time out in the sun looking out at the huge misty river. I didn't eat only because I had my heart set on fried chicken and biscuits.

    I had a wonderful time yesterday. What a perfect place to paddle and then eat! Of cause the company had a lot to do with how enjoyable the day was ;-) Thank you all for coming, it was great to meet you all and I am looking forwards to a repeat!

    I don't know where my comments went but if they show up again forgive the redundancy. It may have been our first meet-up but it won't be the last. Had a great time and I really enjoyed meeting everyone. Thanks for a great day.

    We are getting off I-71 in about 5 min. Had to make an unexpected stop to resecure kayaks. We'll catch up with you all if you're on the water before we get there.

    Sorry to bail on this. I've got to take my daughter to the airport that morning and don't think I'd make it on time.

    Kelly is correct. Flat water paddling.

    I have kayaked here a couple times and it is suitable for beginners. Water level will be fine.

    Looks like fun! I was confused about the 'Big South Fork' part, thinking KY/TN, but looked it up. ;-)

    Is the water pretty low that time of year like Elkhorn?

    July 25

    • Kelly

      No, I just paddled there this week. This is backwater of the Ohio River so the depth is always good. It's basically flatwater paddling. There really is not a current.

    Is that up toward Cincinnati or down toward Tenn? I didn't think Big south fork was up toward Cincinnati but that's what I got for directions.

    • Hilary H.

      The map is correct, this one is North of Louisville but just South of Cincinnati.

    ooh, I'd love to check out someplace new... join you another time? On vacation that week with the kiddos :)

    It's actually $5.00 per car for parking --- no launching fee. You're in my backyard -- sorry I can't make it. You will enjoy the backwater. There are three directions to choose from -- South Fork Creek, Big Bone Creek or Mudlick Creek. All of them are nice. Unless we get a hard rain the night before, it will definitely be suitable for all skill levels.
