Here Are 8 Rivers To Explore In Arkansas After You’ve Paddled The Buffalo

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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
