  • Get Driving Directions
On same side of Trail Creek and just southeast of Blue Chip casino. Kayak/canoe launch is accessible, first in Indiana. If you go right (generally west) toward Blue Chip, it is less than a mile to Lake Michigan. Seems pretty Deep, lots of boats, but no wake zone. If you go left (generally east), you can go about 2 miles up the creek. It gets shallowerand passes a water treatment plant, but not bad. Very wooded and frequent down trees, but all areas were passable until the point we turned around
