Narrows Reserve

The Narrows Reserve offers canoeing, fishing, picnicking and hiking through woodlands, meadows and ravines where you'll see an abundance of plant and animal wildlife. The Narrows Reserve is a great place for nature study, photography, and "roughing it" at one of our primitive campsites.

The Narrows Reserve lies alongside the State and National Scenic Little Miami River near the intersection of Indian Ripple Road and Factory Road in Beavercreek Township, just a few miles south of U.S. Route 35.

​The Narrows Reserve Nature Center is located at 2575 Indian Ripple Road., just west of the main Narrows Reserve entrance. Please plan a visit to view the native plant and animal exhibits, tour the raptor aviary and the Greene County Beekeepers’ Association Apiary. Hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday (closed on Sunday during the winter season.) Naturalists may be away from the building so please call ahead before your visit: 937.429.9590.​
