    back for more. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Arkansas are easier than the national norm, so better not forget that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. This is a pretty decent length section, you

Briefly about the general area:
Bradley Gap is a fine place to go to in close proximity to Camp/Flat Creek, and you're sure to bump into some cheerful people from Wickes here. So much exciting stuff to do here in the Ouachita Mountains, too pleasant to be true. Cossatot River State Park is both great and picturesque, and it's next to Camp/Flat Creek. The high level of rain makes Camp/Flat Creek a rather wet spot.
