Diversion Dam in Caņon City
A coffer dam has been constructed across the entire Arkansas River at the Hydraulic Diversion structure in Caņon City. It is just upstream of the confluence of Grape Creek. There is currently no boat chute available at this location. Boaters in this section of the river will be required to portage the structure when they encounter it. You can paddle up to it and drag your boat across it. If you need additional information please contact Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area at 719-539-7289.
