Ouachita River

Located in West-Central Arkansas, the upper section of the Ouachita River winds its way through the picturesque Ouachita National Forest. Flowing through the valleys beneath breathtaking cliffs and high ridges of the Ouachita mountains, the river finds its way to Lake Ouachita, known as one of the clearest lakes in the world.

Ancient boulders, gigantic slate bluffs, gravel bars for picnics, deep clear holes of clean water for swimming, exciting rapids, wildlife, fish, birds, trees and wildflowers blooming in season and hiking trails make this area an excellent place for all kinds of ourdoor activities.

You will find M & M Canoe right in the middle of this beautiful section of the river. Come see us to float, camp and have fun! Feel the stress leave you as you round a bend in the river and see rapids ahead, or a long quiet deep pool, allowing time to laze back in the canoe and enjoy the sights and sounds around you. Let nostalgia overtake you as a breeze passing through the lazy fronds of moss hanging from the tree limbs whisper secrets of the ancient Indians, Pioneers, Outlaws, and lost and found lovers. Listen to the tales of gold, silver, quartz and other treasures hiding in the mountains.


For Primitive camping, you are welcome to take your tent and supplies and spend the night under the Ouachita sky on one of the many river gravel bars.

We have a store at M & M Canoes offering ice, soft drinks, fishing and hunting licenses (resident and out of state), fish bait, T-shirts, caps and other miscellaneous items. Additional services are nearby in Mt. Ida.
