Anglers Inn - River Access
Canoe/Kayak Access Point
This is a very popular site for kayakers and hikers. Best access for paddlers if through an NPS gate at the lower parking lot. Boats need to be carried across a bridge and down to the river.
The parking area is designed to handle more than 20 vehicles but is temporarily closed due to construction at the C&O Canal towpath breach at Canal mile 12. According to a National Park Service notice, "This much needed repair will restore water flow in the canal after the 125 foot breach in the towpath is rebuilt. This work will require a closure of all parking areas across from the Old Angler's Inn, as well as the lower kayak drop off lot....The expected completion date for the work remains fall 2012."
