Exploring Arkansas August 2014

8/4 - Buffalo River Millie / Whitewater Recreation Park / Longpool Swimmin' Hole
88-year old Millie Calhoun's dream has always been to float the Buffalo National River. We made that dream come true by arranging her very first float trip down America's first national river. The Whitewater Recreation Park along the Illinois River south of Siloam Springs, provides kayaking adventure for both beginners and experts…not to mention tubing fun for everyone. A popular swimmin' hole is located at the Longpool Recreation Area along Big Piney Creek near Dover. Huge boulders provide natural diving platforms. Kayaking and canoeing can also be enjoyed on this creek.
