Thanks to the City of Siloam Springs for acquiring the property and developing the park and access for river users.
The whitewater features should see boatable flows year round.
Park development is still ongoing, please see the following thread on the Arkansas Canoe Club messageboard for access updates:

Lower wave starts to get flushy at ~3 ft and higher. Upper wave starts to get flushy at ~4 ft and higher.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
