White River Canoe Company welcomed a new sister company, Koteewi Run Seasonal Slopes, in December 2017 when OEI, in partnership with Hamilton County Parks & Recreation, opened the snow tubing park at Strawtown Koteewi Park.
Strawtown Koteewi Park is the largest and most scenic park in Hamilton County, Indiana! The park encompasses more than 800 acres, offers eight miles of multi-use trails and stretches along three miles of the White River. The park is comprised of woodlands, wetlands, natural prairie, a 20-acre lake, and is home to a large and diverse wildlife population. Blending into the natural beauty of the park are organized adventures in tree top trails and zip lines, snow sports, archery, and horseback riding. The Taylor Center of Natural History provides tours and artifacts to help you understand the quite long and interesting history of the Strawtown Koteewi area that dates to the end of the last Ice Age. With so much to see and do at SKP, you might consider packing the tent or pulling the camper to White River Campground just across the river, where you can set up base camp and hike or bike into the park via two restored historic bridges.
