Any outfitters you can rent from for doing the Big Piney? keithholmes@cox.net Says Keith Holmes

Great float. More sections of rapids interrupted by sections of pools. Very scenic w/cliffs and wooded sections. Large boulders you can jump from. Clear water. Says J. Tuck

The scenic beauty of Pope County and the cool fresh water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Arkansas is often easier
    than elsewhere, so better not forget that the rivers in this state are less demanding. The put-in is not too far from Russellville, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. Whether
