Upper Mountain Fork River
Smithville, OK 74957
This popular canoe stream empties into Broken Bow Lake and is mostly traveled from Smithville to the Narrows. Occasional ledges create long pools, with a rating of Class I-II+. Being totally dependent on seasonal rainfall, float trips are typically planned in early spring and summer and late autumn. Southeastern Oklahoma is a prime fall foliage destination making it a beautiful time to get out on the river. Two commercial outfitters service the river, and some cabin operators in the area offer the use of a canoe for their overnight guests.
