All the conditions mentioned in the 2004 report are the same. I observed river otters twice as well as turtles attesting to good water quality.
This is a good short trip for local paddlers. There is no evidence that anyone is using the river for tubing or swimming. However,it is a pleasant outing with lots of green shoreline, good current, and no obstructions.
Oxbow Park is just north of US 33 (Lincoln Ave.) across from Meijer's over the RR tracks.
