I really liked the location of this River Rafting company. I like the relaxed vibe. The staff were nice. They are a little intimidating looking as they are tan, have tattoos and look very rugged, like they'd been on the water all summer (and they have). We chose the Numbers rapids which were supposed to be more treacherous. They weren't.... More

This is a great loll park by a beautiful river tight in town. It is a real surprise and delight to have so much natural beauty so close by. Definitely worth spending some time here.

This was a nice park very close to the center of town. We took a little hike along a trail across the river. Great place to picnic.

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.

Everyone will enjoy this fantastic short but amazing stretch of trail along the Arkansas river, connecting to steeper, more challenging trails across the foot bridge. The South Main community is a great place to explore, as you are really off the beaten path and can discover some jewels here!

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. The hiking trail runs the entire length of the water park plus there are more hiking and biking trails on the other side of river. A lot of... More

Easy walking trails for the elderly, young or athletic. Leads to other trails for more challenge or just good to find a bench and listen to the river roll by.
