Old Town Park is the last exit point on the West Nishnabotna River Water Trail.

West Nishnabotna River Water Trail

The West Nishnabnota River Water Trail has access points at the communities of Avoca, Hancock, Oakland, Carson, and Macedonia. As Nate Hoogeveen describes in Paddling Iowa, "Expect no dramatic bluffs or fast water on the West Nishnabotna - it is a very lazily meandering, tree-lined prairie stream, typically brown as cocoa for much of the season, with a sandy and occasionally muddy bottom."

To schedule a West Nishnabotna river journey, contact Rubber Duck Outfitters at (402) 201-6776, or visit their website.
