canoeing in Narrows

The Narrows Reserve offers canoeing, fishing, picnicking and hiking through forests, meadows and ravines where you'll see an abundance of plant and animal wildlife. A great place for nature study, photography, and "roughing it" at one of our primitive campsites.

The Narrows Reserve lies alongside the National and State Scenic Little Miami River near the intersection of Indian Ripple Road and Factory Road in Beavercreek Township, just a few miles south of U.S. Route 35.
