The Ohio River

Tugboat on the Ohio River at Mount Vernon's waterfront.The Ohio River is Posey County’s Eastern Border, extending down to the tip of Indiana where it meets the Wabash and helping to create the unique ecosystem we call the Point.

Visitors can enjoy scenic points along the Ohio from Mount Vernon all the way down to J.T. Meyers Locks and Dam, or even a bit beyond for the more adventurous.

It’s also a great stretch for boating, be it ski boats, pontoons or fishing. The large catfish caught in the Ohio are legendary, particularly near the Dam.
