Arkansas whitewater, Little Mill Creek

Franklin county, Three Forks to Mill Creek takeout section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV     2.75 miles
  If you're coming from Fort Smith it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The Three Forks to Mill Creek takeout section of Little Mill Creek in Franklin County is 2.75 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class III-IV section. The beautiful scenery of Arkansas and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make
    the trip here worthwhile. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Getting your paddling muscles
activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come. When you're paddling down a Boston Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too. This is a bit of a short stretch so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often easier than elsewhere, so  
better not forget that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that.

Briefly about the general area:
Little Mill Creek is right by the Shores Lake Water Rock Spur; there are plenty of people from Mountainburg here at Little Mill Creek. You just can't envision the amount of outdoors entertaining things the Boston Mountains has to offer. A spree to Little Mill Creek wouldn’t be complete without a tour to close by Lake Fort Smith State Park.
