There’s no doubt we’re fans of the Buffalo River, after all it’s one of the natural wonders of Arkansas. Not only does it have a fantastic all-day float trip and the most gorgeous campsite in the state, there’s even a nearby spot that has an actual buffalo herd to visit. But what do you do after you’ve crossed it off your bucket list? Not to fret, the Natural State is filled with fantastic floats! We’ve gathered our favorite eight rivers and creeks to share with you today. No matter if you’re lazily floating, just paddling along, or taking a rip-roaring kayak trip, we have a stream for you.
To help you begin planning for your next river trip, we’ve included addresses to the nearest outfitter or state park.
