Mississippi river travel

I am looking for information on how to put in a small boat along the Mississippi River in North East Arkansas

For my father's 90 birthday his wish has always been to travel the Mississippi River.

Could you possibly clarify whether you are looking for a small boat to rent or are you looking for a ramp to put in your own small boat on the Mississippi?

Though this is not what you asked, I would like to mention the very nice Mississippi River museum at Mud Island in downtown Memphis. They also offer some small unmotorized boats. www.mudisland.com

Also another idea, again not what you asked, is traveling the river on a cruise ship such as those available in Memphis:

Eric at the Osceola Arkansas Chamber of Commerce can refer you to boat rental vendors along the Mississippi in NE Arkansas, if that is what you are looking for. Here is his address:

Here is the reply from the chamber of Commerce at the NE Arkansas town of Osceola. "We have a modern boat ramp into the Mississippi River at the Sans Soucci City Park about 5 miles south of Osceola plus the Osceola River Port. If the Visitor wants to launch his boat themselves, I’d suggest the ramp at Sans Soucci. Let me know if you need any thing else."
