Illinois, Arkansas, US
4) Hwy 16 to Arkansas 59 Near Siloam Springs (5.1 miles) (Fisher Ford)
||I-II (for normal flows)
Nice slow class I float with an occasional Class II riffle. Many places to access although it
flows through private land for much of the way.
Do not confuse the takeout with Oklahoma Hwy 59 as it will make the trip much much longer through
the remnants of Lake Francis!
About halfway, the creek crosses under Fisher Ford Road and drops over a bedrock shoal known as
'Fisher Ford'. In 2014, enhancements are being completed to create the city of
Siloam Springs Whitewater
Recreational Park. This is a nice class II playspot that offers something to surf at
most flows, even in the summer.
Can be combined with upstream
sections for longer trips.
