Where Does It Go?- To
Unlimited Sportsman's Cabin and the Cartney Access to the White River.
What Is It Like? - The first
couple of miles is along private property. After you cross the creek you are on National
Forest land. This is a remote and pretty road, especially at the lower end. However you
will need a high clearance vehicle.
Cartney White River Access - Past
the store follow CR 72 about 1/2 mile and you come to a "T" intersection. CR 72
turns off to the left. Go straight. The road turns into CR 114. Follow CR 114 about two
miles. You'll come to a creek that crosses the road in two places. EXCEPT during floods,
drive right across the creeks. At the end of the road is a nice public boat launch ramp 3
miles from Hwy 341. It is pretty down here, a good place for a picnic. You can also bank
fish for trout in the White River. At the first creek crossing you'll see a road on the
left. This road makes a good place to walk in the woods for birding and photography. CR 114 dead ends at the
High clearance vehicle recommended. There are two spots where you drive across the
creek. The creek bottom is solid rock so you won't get stuck. The water is not deep, nor
does it run strong unless flooding. The danger for low-clearance cars is that if not
extremely careful you'll hit the bottom of your car and possibly damage it. This is why we
recommend driving this road only if you have a high clearance high center vehicle. The
first creek crossing is right after you pass Unlimited
Sportsman's Cabin, which is a great little place to spend a few nights.
