Canoeing & Kayaking

The rivers flowing through the Ouachitas offers an abundance of fun or relaxation. Nature is at its purest from offering our guests opportunities to fish, float, swim, canoe, kayak, camp or take pictures. A number of cabin rentals and lodges offer spectacular views and direct access to the rivers and ATV trails.


Cossatot River

The National Park Service describes it as “probably the most challenging” whitewater float in the state. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers is a little more emphatic, saying it “is the most difficult whitewater stream in the state of Arkansas.” Early American Indians simply called it Cossatot – their word for “skull crusher.”

Little Missouri River

The Little Missouri River is a rocky mountain river that flows through narrow forested canyons. Tourist are attracted to this beautiful area because of the numerous small waterfalls, crystal clear water, and outstanding scenery including towering rocky bluffs crowned with pine. Little Missouri Falls is a stair step fall in a deep gorge that attracts photographers and visitors.

Ouachita River

Caddo River

Flowing out of our Ouachita Mountains is one of the state’s most unappreciated streams – the Caddo River. Those who know it, however, describe the Caddo as among the best “family outing” type streams in the state.
