Indian Draft is a river access point along the Jackson and a potential put out point if floating down from Gathright Dam.

The rapids at Indian Draft, although not large enough to cause any real danger, add a little excitement to the float down from Gathright Dam. Travelers pass through a corridor flanked by sycamores on both sides and a ceiling of clear blue sky. Each turn provides the observer with a surprise maybe a white-tailed doe and her spotted fawn or perhaps a family of wood ducks with their fluffy young. On closer inspection, the banks hold numerous varieties of wildflower.

From I-64, take Exit 16 for US 220 N, turn left on US 220/US60, and make another left to remain on US 220 N for 5.2 miles. Make a slight left at Jackson River Road SR 687. Continue on 687 to Indian Draft.
