Directions: North Point Marina is located at the east end of Main Street (7th Street) in Winthrop Harbor. The south unit of Illinois Beach State Park is located at the east end of Wadsworth Road in Zion.
Notes: This water trail is recommended only for experienced sea kayakers or kayakers with an experienced group or guide. Overnight parking is permitted at North Point Marina, and campground sites should be reserved in advance. However, because much of the south unit of Illinois Beach State Park is a dedicated Illinois Nature Preserve, landing and launching is restricted to the northern half of the park. Access to areas south of and including the Dead River is by permit only.
Always check water conditions before your trip.
