I noticed below that no out fitters were currently listed for this area. Moore outdoors is always friendly and has everything that you might need. Canoes, kayaks, rafts paddles etc... Says Glenn Daniel

Does anyone know how Moore Outdoors is doing?  Last year when I went, their store was always closed even though they were still renting. Cant seem to get anyone on the phone this year. Says Clay

I go to the big piney every year,
    always have a blast always find something new, not the most challenging paddling but I always have a great time. If you go and don't use moore outdoors its definitely a mistake Says bret lasater

The wonderful Arkansas
scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The average Arkansas whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be easier to run than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that a lot of the rivers in this state are suitable for beginners. The Long Pool Campground to Highway 164 section of Big Piney Creek in Pope County is 4.4 miles long and has been  
rated as a class II section by American Whitewater. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good spots. When you're paddling down a Boston Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. On this section you do get some distance, good for a one day paddling trip. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come. The campgrounds here at Big Piney Creek are pretty good. There are so many sections to paddle in this river system, the Long Pool Campground to Highway 164 section is just one of many.
