This Underrated River Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Place In Arkansas
Thrillist named Kings River the most underrated place in Arkansas, and we agree. The Mulberry, the Buffalo, and the White River get tons of attention, but what about their less developed counterparts? Kings River is a tributary of the White, and from its starting point on the slopes of the Boston Mountains, it flows nearly straight north for more than 90 miles until it empties into Table Rock Lake. The best part about the Kings River, though, is that every one of those miles is gorgeous.
