Canoeists enjoy the peaceful serenity of the Sangamon River that travels through the Rock Springs Conservation Area. Bring your own canoe and personal floatation devices. Canoes are not provided by the Macon County Conservation District.
Canoeists can load or unload canoes/kayaks to gain access to the river from two canoe access areas near Rock Springs. A Sangamon River canoe access area is located just north of the Wyckles Road Bridge on the west side of Wyckles Road. Parking is provided. The Decatur Park District manages a put-in site located just below the low-head dam on Lake Decatur.
Please remember to follow all state posted rules and regulations regarding the use of boats/canoes on the river. The access may be closed due to flooding. You can check the home page of this website for closure notices.
