June 21, marks the first day of summer, and what would be summer be without a float trip. Sure there are many rivers around this area where you could float but Arkansas has some of the most beautiful places to do just that. Makes me think of that old pop song "Hot Fun in The Summertime."

Whether you're looking for something peaceful, serene, or more adventurous, Arkansas with its abundance of mountains, clear lakes, rivers, bluffs, and canyons make any float trip something to remember. Of course, there are plenty of ways to float including the old-fashioned tube, canoeing, or kayaking. Let's take a look at 3 of the Best Places for a Float Trip in Arkansas.

Little Missouri

Little Missouri Falls at Albert Pike is one of the most visited areas in the state and one of Texarkana's favorite destinations when it comes to floating, swimming, or camping. With all the recent rain we've had now is the best time to float this beautiful river located near Murfreesboro.

Cossatot River

The Cossatot River near the town of Wickes has long been a favorite for the more adventurous type with its wild river rapids depending on how much rainfall the river has had. With amazing scenery at every twist and turn and home to the Skull Crusher. This is one to remember!

Caddo River

For those who want to enjoy a more leisure relaxing type float trip, you can't go wrong with the Caddo River located near Glenwood. Nestled between tall pine trees and the surrounding beauty of the Ouachita mountains this has fast become a fan favorite for many years now. I loved floating this river personally, I loved seeing the hawks, bald eagles, and other wildlife along the journey. There are numerous places where you can stop and have a picnic lunch if you wish.
