The Arkansas River
The Arkansas River in Hutchinson, Kansas is your best destination for outdoor activities. Abundant wild life and natural surroundings will make your outing a memorable experience. A sandy bottom and a lot of sand bars make for great sunbathing, swimming and picnics. Conditions vary and floaters should be aware of their abilities, experience, weather and water conditions. Arkanoe floats rain or shine. In the event of impending severe weather, your float will be re-scheduled for the earliest possible date.
The Arkansas River is a public waterway. We ask that you do your part to maintain its scenic beauty by packing out what you pack in - and then some.
