Arkansas has more than 90,000 miles of rivers, streams and bayous, much of which is perfect for floating. Paddling in The Natural State provides opportunity to land a small mouth bass, meander through a cypress swamp and make a run through rugged white water.
In the past few years, recreational kayaking was the fastest growing outdoor recreational activity. Paddling is a great way to get out an watch wildlife, fish, and engage in a healthy living habit. And, paddlers bring money to our local economies.
There is two trail dedications coming up, and canoes will be provided.
