I have not been back to the Arkansas River since 1970 when I watched a kayaking competition. I was so surprised to see all the development to make it a first class destination. We were there in the fall but I would love to see it in the summer. What a great addition for their town.

Don't miss the river park if you're in the area. Places to relax and enjoy the river, all kinds of trails and spots to get your feet wet. We got to watch kayaks, hikers, etc. The bridge is a great photo op.

This place has everything, I think there are 5 or 6 different areas set-up for kayakers, stand-ups, and surfing. Nice launch areas, with the trail alongside to rest or watch the action.

I couldn't get enough of this place. We were staying nearby and I came down to the river to just be in nature and read a book while listening to the river. They've actually made some "pools" in the river for paddle boarding, kayaking, and even surfing. I was fascinated to watch the adventures and wished I'd brought a life... More
