  1. Kayaking | Trip Planner
    I'm headed to Buena Vista for the weekend and did not realize that some (all?) of the Arkansas headwater campsites that I've stayed at in the past are now reservable online... and predictably already taken. I'm having trouble figuring out which spots are considered part of the AHRA and which...

  4. Whitewater Rafting
    A buddy is taking his family to Buena Vista the first week in June and he wants to do some rafting. Only adults will be rafting and all plenty capable but not much experience so they want to go with a guided trip. A decade ago he visited me in Boise and he did the Main Payette in a ducky with...

    By any chance does somebody know the flow on the Arkansas about now? Does it look like higher-than-usual early spring flows? How much lower is the flow near Buena Vista compared to Wellsville at this time of year(currently 276 cfs)? Thanks!

    Does anyone have any recommendations for long-term camping options in the Arkansas valley? I'm asking for a friend who isn't on the buzz, yet. He needs parking for a camper b/c he is planning on guiding for a company that doesn't have housing. Thanks!

    Hey all! Someone stole two whitewater kayaks from behind our outpost in Buena Vista sometime yesterday, Friday May 6th 2016. One is an 8.6 RED Dagger Mamba and the other is a large obnoxious YELLOW Jackson Villain. If you see them for sale anywhere, or have any information, PLEASE contact me...
  14. Whitewater Rafting
    Heading to Buena Vista Memorial weekend, I know that there is Kayak festival at that time, is there an event agenda online? Music? And how about places to buy showers? I have used the KOA before, but they treat me like I am going to steel the shower heads or something, not a friendly inviting place.

    Hey Gang, Does anyone have any info on the "Newest Version" of the Silver Bullet (Boat Chute) south of BV as the water comes up? After being closed most of last year due to the hole at the third drop, I'm just wondering if it is better this year as the water comes up. As much as I...
