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.
