    I was checking out some lakes on that site this summer. They mark a lot, but say they don't have the map for them yet. It looks like they are just taking all of the info off of the ODNR web site and trying to make money off of it. It is a nice site with a lot of potential. It looks like you can add comments to the site to give more info on those access points.

    Yes, you can add comments on your experiences. The Natural Resource is free to you and me. Their goal is to get all of Ohio's outdoor info on one site. If you make a comment on an access, take a picture of an access, this info will show up for others to see and use. Hopefully they get the rest of the states rivers up soon.

    Yeah, I know it's free. I was just saying that they were taking free public information that is already available on ODNR and repackaging it in a site where they could attract advertising. Check out all of the dots on the map for the access points. They are the exact ones as on ODNR and ODNR does have navigable rivers and streams posted for all of Ohio. They also use the same lake maps that are on ODNR.

    I'm sure their goal is to make money. More power to them. It would be good if it takes off and people really do start putting valuable info on there. It would be useful to know if there were bait shops, canoe liveries, restaurants, etc. in the area. People could let you know what the accesses are like, if they are safe to leave your vehicle, etc.

    but I think that businesses do advertise on some of the other maps. I will take a photo and submit a comment next time I hit the Maumee at one of the access points. That would be a great resource if more people shared their info and it was compiled all in one location. I'm spoiled though, they have a real time water gauge that gives an elevation above sea level reading for the Maumee. Check it http://www.thenaturalresource.com/walleye_run_2007.php

    Stream Stalker, the biggest problem with the DNR maps are that they no zooming features. http://www.thenaturalresource.com/fishing/WATACCRS_02.php has google maps so you can actually see street level detail for the access points. The DNR maps are really tough to find the access points from the listed view.
