The creek is well shaded with trees on both sides. We saw red tailed hawks, egrets, deer, otters and fish as we floated towards the Wabash River. The creek had some debris from homeowners near it, but all in all not bad. During our trip we saw only one other person.
The river section down the Wabash was uneventful. For a longer trip one could take out at the boat dock at Fairbanks Park in Terre Haute which is south of the US 40 Bridge. For a shorter trip one could put out at the Mike Kerns Access located in Tecumseh, IN. That access point will be on the right side of the river as you travel south on the Wabash.
Tecumseh will be a short paddle distance from where Otter Creek meets the Wabash River. My buddy Jeff and I were starting to wear down (given our age), so we put out by the Elks Club. They have an old concrete ramp that was used years ago.
