Lower Mountain Fork River
The Lower Mountain Fork River offers year-round trout fishing throughout a 12-mile portion of lower river, as well as its tributaries from the Broken Bow dam downstream to US-70 bridge. The river is also a popular canoe and kayak float trip destination from spring through fall. About five miles of the Lower Mountain Fork River is within Beavers Bend State Park, where boat access is unlimited. Below the park area, there are public access points at the dam and near the rapids of Presbyterian Falls. Camping and cabin rentals are available at Beavers Bend State Park.
