Secluded and not well-known this river has remained untamed (no dams block its course) and un-commercialized. Located in the southeast corner of the state this pristine river runs southward through most of McCurtain County. It starts its trek in the southwest corner of the Kiamichi Mountains, parallels Hwy 259 until it flows into the Little River, and turns off to the east. There are no concessions available along this river so the prospective floater should have knowledge of topography and experience with unpredictable waters. When the river is low, rocks, logs, and low falls make for a difficult float, and when the river is up, the journey is very dangerous. Some cabin operators in the area will offer the use of a canoe with lodging rental to enjoy the natural beauty and solitude of this river.

We have 1/2 mile of Upper Mtn Fork River, not far from this location. RVers, campers, cabins in the planning. See boondockerslanding.com

Sarah, we don't know of any campgrounds directly located on the river, but there are many nearby. If you'll click on 'Campgrounds within 15 miles' under the map feature on this page, it will pull up what is available. The Three Rivers WMA may be able to give you more information, and you can reach them at 918-527-5308. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Is there camping allowed nearby or along the river?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/20/14

Deb, other than Google Maps to get you in the general area, the best way to get directions would be to call the nearby Wildlife Management Area at 918-527-5308. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

I went there several times as a kid. What's the simplest way to get there from Idabel?

Water is very low right now. Some parts of river are only inches deep and some pools do not even connect withthe river. Advice-Wait for lots of rain....do rain dance and wait a while before floating the river


From Terry Mahorney on 04/28/11

We love to stay at Tree Top View Cabins on the Glover River! We love the wilderness and the natural beauty of the river.
