Bella Casa Kings River Huntsvile Canoe Trips


Arkansas is the perfect destination for all of you outdoors enthusiasts. One of the best kept secrets is the Kings River. Ideal for family recreation, the Kings River runs for 90 miles from where its headwaters originate east of Boston in Newton County, Arkansas. It flows generally Northward merging with Osage Creek before it flows into Table Rock Lake at the Arkansas Missouri border. With an average gradient of 16 feet per mile, it cuts through the rock strata of the high Ozark Plateau. Its waters create a beautiful clear mountain stream with canyons, scenic bluffs and waterfalls. The upper reaches of the river provide excellent whitewater while the lower reaches have sufficient water for year round floating. It has achieved fame as a smallmouth bass stream and as a habitat for wintering bald eagles. The wooded slopes and valleys furnish exceptional range for large and small game and support many species of unique plants and animals. Pink azaleas, wild roses and dogwood blooms appear in spring. It remains as the only major free flowing stream running into the White River in this area.

Bella Casa has two beautiful vacation rental homes located on the Kings River. Bella Casa Kings River Eureka Springs is located on the trigger gap portion of the river and only 1/2 mile from Kings River outfitters where you can rent all your canoe gear. Bella Casa Kings River Huntsville is perfectly situated in Huntsville and offers 3 different exciting canoe trips which are only accessible for those staying in one of our properties since it provides a private put in or take out.

Float/Canoe Options

1.Bella Casa Kings River Huntsville to Marshall Ford

Do you only have a few hours to float and have your own gear? You can put in behind the property at your own personal put-in and have a nice 2-3 hour float to the Marshall ford public put-in/takeout. This is a great float, but there is one point that you will have to take your canoe out of the water and haul it up over a private concrete bridge to get to the other side. All you have to do is follow the yellow canoe signs behind the house! 

2. Marshall Ford to Bella Casa Kings River Huntsville

This is a beautiful 6-7 hour float for those of you that have your own gear. You will put in at the public put-in at Marble and then take out at Bella Casa Kings River Huntsville. Just think how nice it will be to take out at Bella Casa Huntsville and relax for the rest of the afternoon.

3. Kings River (Marble To Marshall Ford)

The Kings River offers rewards that go far beyond the fine smallmouths you’re likely to tangle with. This is a dream stream beyond compare, beautiful and pristine. It transports the float-fisherman back in time to a simpler, less complicated era. Long, deep pools make the segment from Marble to Marshall Ford (10.7 miles) a good fisherman’s float. Overhanging trees and logs sometimes hamper travel, but there are no dangerous hazards, and the scenery is excellent. The put-in is northwest of Marble at a county road crossing. Take out at the low-water bridge at Marshall Ford, an access point northeast of Alabam. You will have to take your canoe out of the water and haul it up over a private concrete bridge to get to the other side.
