The Great Eleven Point River Float.  Let’s fill the river with people!

June 30, 2018 Put in the river at 9931 HWY 93 north of Dalton between 9 a.m. and noon.

Please visit or call 870-248-0069 for more information.


Our goal is to see how many people we can get for a float on our county’s finest floating river. The winner will receive a large trophy and a $100 cash prize. Join your neighbors to float the beautiful, shady 11 Point!

Participants are free to travel at their own pace. The prize will be awarded to the group with the most participants, not to the fastest to cover the course. There is no charge to participate.

Participants will put-in between 9 a.m. and noon on June 30. The float begins at 9931 HWY 93, the site of the former Woody’s Campground, four miles north of Dalton on Highway 93, and ends at the river access point at Dalton.

Participants must furnish their own boats, tubes, kayaks, or canoes—only one motorized boat allowed per group. Proper safety gear such as life preservers must accompany each vessel. Groups are responsible for their own take-out transportation at Dalton.

Signup sheets are available at the Pocahontas Visitor Information Center at the Old train Depot, or online at Signup sheets must be turned in by Friday, June 29 or at the event.

For more information, call 248-0069 (alternate number 378-2089).
