Casino Boat Dam East
Fox River (IL) - Aurora, IL

Portage on river right at west dam -go west/right before you get to the casino boat, there is no portage here and this and west dam are very dangerous!






...
Portage on river right (west side of river) along cement walkway and river overlook. There is also a series of canoe chutes for the more experienced paddler. You can take out just before the chutes when portaging. DO NOT attempt to run this or the west dam, recirculating currents and difficult access make these dams EXTREMELY dangerous! - Map it
Casino Boat Dam West

Possible site of new Aurora whitewater park as part of riverside greening project. There are canoe chutes on west side of river adjacent to the bank (chutes were open in Oct 2007).
