Vermillion River Rafting
The Vermillion river is a fisherman’s paradise, with numerous eddies, slack pools, overhanging and downed trees, deep holes and rocky shorelines. If a leisurely trip is what you have in mind, bring along your fishing poles and a picnic lunch. Don’t forget that this is a whitewater trip, and sooner or later, you are going to get wet! The big Vermillion River starts its 50 mile course as a pair of creeks on the border of Ford and Livingston counties, deepens as it rolls through Pontiac to the dam at Streator, picks up speed as it winds through Matthiessen State Park and empties into the Illionois River near LaSalle/Peru.
