View Full Version : Question about outdoor activities

09-25-2003, 12:06 PM
Hi! My family as well as an entire group will possibly be meeting up in Branson next summer. I have purused what is online regarding outdoor activities but did not see anything on whitewater rafting.

I'm not familiar with Branson and wondered if there was white water there and a company to take us rafting.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

In Missouri we go on float trips. As far as I know there aren't any white water rafting spots around, but I may be wrong. Here are some links that may be helpful.

the buffalo national river south of harrison, arkansas is a beautiful float trip. It is not white water rafting by any means though. The only place in the Ozarks that I would consider to be even close to White water rafting would be portions of the White River in Arkansas. It gets kind of rough in some parts. The illinois river close to Tahlequah , Oklahoma is a very popular place for canoe trips. I have seen rafts on it, but for the most part, it is too shallow for rafts.

If you wanted to drive down to Southeastern Oklahoma, the Glover River is about as close to White River rafting anywhere near this area.

Hope this helps
