of the Eleven Point and Buffalo and also add North Fork of the White and the White.
The Buffy needs to be on your bucket list since you like canoe camping, and there are liveries that can provide everything from boats to shuttles to showers at pretty reasonable rates. Do keep in mind that it's not spring fed like the Current so you'll have to watch the water levels. That said, the lower section from Rush to the mouth of the Buffalo at the White river is an incredibly remote and gorgeous float that can be done at a relaxed pace over three days pretty much any time. However, unlike the Current there's nothing in those thirty plus miles in terms of showers, supplies or access or for that matter even hiking out. It's completely wild and scenic. That's a good thing IMO, but to each his own. That said, there are two resort type camprounds at the takeout. Also, if the water were to cooperate, which is always a possibility, you could launch higher for a longer trip and take advantage of resupplying opportunities along the way before reaching Rush. Take your fishing pole and a sack of jig heads and tubes and you'll have all the smallmouth fun you can stand.
For something different you could also put together a "lodge camping" or campground camping (as opposed to gravel bar) type float on the White. Many opportunities for that I can help you with if you're interested.
Another option if you want to keep it in the five day range is to overnight on two rivers, Eleven Point and North Fork of the White with a night in a campground, cabin or room in between.
All sorts of possibilities, and I'll be glad to help with advice and anything else within my abilities.
