Van Buren county, Brushy Fork to Highway 65 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II(III)     26.5 miles
 
Tornado has filled the river with a lot of trees, brush and strainers from the bridge on highway 95 between Clinton, Ar and Scotland, Ar to who knows how far down street. The sections upstream from Gulf Mountain Wildlife Preserve should be in good condition. Says D. D.

This stretch of Little Red River - South Fork is 26.5 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II(III) section of whitewater. The beautiful scenery
    of Arkansas and the playfulness of the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. If you're coming from Mountain Home it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, there's a road map further down the page with
more info on that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so better not forget that a large number of rivers in this state are quite easy. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find  
a large number of good spots. There are so many stretches to paddle in this river system, the Brushy Fork to Highway 65 stretch is just one of many. The Boston Mountains scenery is wonderful.
