Every access area profiled in the Blue Water Trails is open to public use.

Public access points in Casey County include the Old Water Plant, Central KY Ag Expo Center (multiple points of access), and Green River Valley Ford. The county has other access points north of the Old Water Plant that are also considered public county roads.
