Eby's Mill Access

River enthusiasts heading downriver from Pictured Rocks can now take out at the new Eby's Mill River Access, located on the east side of the Eby's Mill Road, just downstream of the bridge, on the left side of the river.

The access has been underconstruction and was completed in the Fall 2022.   This project was made possible by a 3-acre donation from Tom Barry.    Currently, the site is suitable for kayaks, canoers, and tubers.  Signs are posted at the entrance.








The access has a hard surface ramp - concrete and stabilized shoreline to allow safe usage during a large variety of river levels.  In addition to a new ramp, Eby’s Mill now also contains 9 vehicle-trailer or vehicle-vehicle parking spots, and 25 single vehicle parking spots.  Overflow parallel parking is also available along the entry drive.  Two of these parking locations are handicap accessible – one vehicle-trailer and one single vehicle.  All are connected to the ramp and a soon-to-be added informational kiosk via a sidewalk.
