SOAR Inflatable Canoes - Somewhere On A River

The Kings river rises in the Ozark National Forest north of Fallsville in Madison County, Arkansas, then flows north crossing Arkansas SH 74, US Highway 412, US Highway 65 at Eureka Springs and into Table Rock Lake at SH 86 in southwestern Missouri. The river flows about 78 miles, beginning as a Class III+ whitewater stream for the first 11 miles between Dripping Springs and Arkansas SH 74 (the Upper Kings River), then becoming a more gentle Class I to I+ run for the remaining 82.5 miles into Missouri in the Mark Twain National Forest on the Barry-Stone County Line (the Lower Kings River.) The Kings River is a gorgeous stream that is surrounded by equally beautiful and scenic natural grandeur in a very remote part of the country where animals outnumber people by a substantial margin. Because of the vast difference in the characteristics of the two reaches each will be discussed separately.
