Arkansas whitewater, Mulberry River

Franklin county, Redding Campground to Highway 23 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     3.6 miles
Your talking about the higher part of the river. You have should see the lower run!! Says Traye

This stretch of Mulberry River in Arkansas is 3.6 miles long and it is classified as a class I-III section by American Whitewater. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Arkansas are often easier than in other states, so don't forget that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. The put-in location is a
    reasonable drive from Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers, as you can see on the road map further down. When you're paddling down a Boston Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. There's
camping available near Mulberry River. There are plenty of other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. This is a pretty short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. The beautiful scenery of Arkansas and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. The nearby hotels are a bit  
away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large number of good places.

Briefly about the general area:
Going for a hike on the Spy Rock Redding Loop is always a splendid adventure, and if you're stopping by from Combs, you won't be the only one. If you want a wonderful time in the great outdoors just come on up to the Boston Mountains. There are great places to discover along the Shores Lake Water Rock Spur; since you're here why not go to McMillan Hollow.
