White River - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Destination Report
Nearest City: Mountain View, AR, USA
Difficulty: Easy
Submitted by: Charles

Description:

I have a waterfront lot on a stretch of the White River between Mtn. View and Batesville, Arkansas. The river is about 200-300 yards wide and flows at the rate of about 3 miles per hour. It is always cool to cold because of the upstream dams. This makes it ideal habitat for rainbow and brown trout.

About 3 miles upriver from me is Martin Access. I usually just put my kayak in there and float down to my lot, fishing along the way. Motorboats can use the river but there are usually few along this stretch.

I have a 12x16' wooden portable building that I use as a primitive cabin. I am extending an invitation for responsible paddlers and campers to use and enjoy this beautiful spot at no charge. Email me for specifics. The lot is in a pasture of several hundred acres. There are mountains on one side and the river on the other.

Accommodations:

Cabins and motels in Mtn. View. A great place to listen to local mountain music around the court house square.

Fees:

None

Directions:

From Batesville Arkansas, go north on Hwy 14 about 17 miles to Marcella. Turn right on Partee Ln and go to the river.

Launches:

Martin Access is about 3 miles north of Partee Rd on Hwy 14.

Resources:

Mtn. View Chamber of Commerce.
