The Elk River is a class 1 to 2 river, so it’s just right for families and people on their first float trip. It’s also a relaxing change for experienced canoeists. The Elk runs from Missouri into Oklahoma, fed by tributaries Big Sugar and Little Sugar. The scenery is beautiful and the water is crystal clear, perfect for swimming and fishing.
In spring, caves and bluffs are visible through the new growth on the trees, and the Elk is a great spot for fishing. Summer is the classic time for canoeing, kayaking, and rafting, keeping cool in the water during hot days, and hanging out around the campfire with friends and family, making memories. Fall color can be appreciated best as you slip through the river in a canoe.
While you’re visiting, you can enjoy area attractions like the Bluff Dwellers Cavern, Centerton State Fish Hatchery, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Cherokee National Museum, Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park, the National Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame Museum, Harber Village Antique Historical Museum, and many more attractions. The natural scenic beauty of the Missouri Ozarks make this region a perfect vacation destination, and Gracie’s Canoe Camp can be the center of your visit.
