Marina Park - Indian River

Best Indian River access, just up the Little Sturgeon River

Home / Regions / Marina Park - Indian River


Marina Park, in downtown Indian River across from the motorized boat launch, is currently undeveloped and only limited parking and a few picnic tables are there at the moment. The park is just up stream from the Indian River on the Little Sturgeon River. Non-motorized watercraft can pass through a road culvert to get to the park. The Little Sturgeon River is very slow moving. The park is directly adjacent to the North Central State Trail. It is also adjacent to the full service community of Indian River. Accommodations, food, outfitters and supplies are within walking distance.
