Kings River , Eureka Springs Arkansas
Ideal for family recreation, the Kings River runs for 90 miles from where its headwaters originate east of Boston in Newton County, Arkansas. It flows generally Northward merging with Osage Creek before it flows into Table Rock Lake at the Arkansas Missouri border. With an average gradient of 16 feet per mile, it cuts through the rock strata of the high Ozark Plateau. Its waters create a beautiful clear mountain stream with canyons, scenic bluffs and waterfalls. The upper reaches of the river provide excellent whitewater while the lower reaches have sufficient water for year round floating. It has achieved fame as a smallmouth bass stream and as a habitat for wintering bald eagles. The wooded slopes and valleys furnish exceptional range for large and small game and support many species of unique plants and animals. Pink azaleas, wild roses and dogwood blooms appear in spring. It remains as the only major free flowing stream running into the White River in this area.So if you are planning a trip to Eureka Springs, Arkansas be sure to leave time to visit our rivers.
