Canoeing, Rafting, & Kayaking


Arkansas has more than 9,000 miles of streams, and a good deal of this mileage is perfect for floating - be it by canoe, johnboat, raft or kayak. The variety of Arkansas river rafting adventures is remarkable, ranging from matchless trout fishing trips and rugged whitewater rafting to peaceful float trips ideal for first timers. Take a canoeing vacation in Arkansas, where the streams are, in a word, inviting.
