Yellowwood SF and Hoosier NF Excursions
Yellowwood State Forest
Crooked Creek Lake
CCL is a relatively small forest lake with a fine population of bass, bluegill, redear, and
channel catfish. It is also a relatively remote place to paddle. Rarely will you see another
boat on the lake. Most High Adventure Outfitters has canoes and kayaks for drop off to
Crooked Creek Lake.
Yellowwood Lake is 133 acres, and has exceptional fishing for bass, bluegill, redear,
crappie, and catfish. A very nice campground is located along the lake shore as well.
Most High Adventure Outfitters delivers canoes and kayaks to Yellowwood Lake. Rental
rates are presented HERE.
Hoosier National Forest
Salt Creek and Lake Monroe Backwaters
The very best paddling in Brown County is on Salt Creek upstream of Lake Monroe and
on the Lake Monroe backwater. Most High Adventure Outfitters provides special easy to
paddle canoes and kayaks for this area, designed to allow the paddlers to covers lot of
water. Extremely stable fishing canoes are also available for rental.
You will be treated to an abundance of wildlife, fantastic scenery, paddling and hiking
through the Deam Wilderness of Hoosier National Forest, and see very few other people.
Quality primitive camping along the lake shore is also an option with a trip to this area.
This is MHAO's premier Brown County wilderness experience and a must do for any
adventurous traveler to Brown County
