With 4 access points and a floating camping platform available for reservations, the Little Maumelle River provides a great float for a levels minutes from downtown Little Rock.
Towering cypress trees, sprawling American lotus and solitude near the city draw paddlers and anglers to the Little Maumelle River. The Little Maumelle River is free of rapids, although high water can create dangerous conditions around trees. At normal water level, paddling upstream is an option. Contact Pinnacle Mountain State Park for guided float trips, and canoe and kayak rentals.
One unique feature along the trail is a floating campsite. Hidden among the cypress trees, not far from the banks of the Nature Conservancy in Arkansas’ William Kirsch Preserve at Ranch North Woods, floats the new camping platform. This is a spot for paddlers to stop for the night and experience solitude, stars and the sounds of nature. The platform is available by reservation only. To request a reservation, click here
