There’s Nothing Better Than Arkansas’s Natural Lazy River On A Summer’s Day
If you’re looking for rapids, the Ouachita River is not the place you want. This slow-moving river is better for laid back floating or a family-friendly tubing adventure. Though in its upper region the Ouachita River has some class I and class II rapids, which are hands down the easiest rapids, you’ll find the lower portion of the river is wide and slow, exactly the kind of place you’ll want to float lazily along.
