About Boze Mill
Boze Mill Float Camp is the only float camp along the Elven Point River that can be accessed from either the river or by car. Located at approx. river mile 33.5, Boze Mill is about 2.6 miles downstream from the Greenbriar Float Camp, or about 2.1 miles upstream from Riverton Access.
Boze Mill Spring forms a beep blue pool as it emerges from underground, producing between 12-14 million gallons of water per day on average. Many different aquatic plants can been seen around the spring and spring branch. As the spring branch makes its way towards the Eleven Point River, it passes through an old hand-layered rock wall, remnants from the Lucas Boze grist mill from the late 1800s. An old turbine, as well as the rock wall, are all that remain from the old mill.
Primitive camping is the main feature of this area for floaters. Scattered picnic tables area also available, as well as pedestal grills, and a centrally located vault toilet.
This is also a great spot to do some fishing, especially for bass, rainbow trout or pan fish. Wade fishing can be done here, but often times the water is cold and the current swift.
