About Kings River

The Kings Offers over 90 miles of navigable wilderness. The Kings is one of only five north-flowing rivers within the continental United States, three of which are in Arkansas. It is excellent for hiking, floating, caoneing and of course fishing. The Kings has countless rock bass and large channel catfish, but when fishing this stream, most anglers think of the big smallmouth bass. Take along heavy tackle. A baitcasting reel, a medium-action rod, and 10- to 12-pound line are appropriate.

Getting there: Hwy 62 to Rockhouse Road (County Rd, 302), 7 miles to AR Hwy 221, left at the fork for 1 mile, your first right will take you past 2 access points, Trigger Gap and Rockhouse.

If you want to stay right on the river, rent a canoe or kayak, or get help with fishing, Riverview Resort can help.
