Cossatot River State Park-Natural Area is located in southwest Arkansas. This National Wild and Scenic River is a watershed basin with flow levels dependent on rainfall. After significant precipitation, the river level rises. It has been a dry winter following a dry summer and autumn so the water level in the river was low and the bottom could be seen in numerous places.
|These underwater rocks look like cobblestones. Maybe this is a road from an ancient civilization....|
This State Park-Natural Area stretches for 12 miles along the scenic Cossatot River, Arkansas's premier whitewater experience renowned as the best whitewater float stream in mid-America.

|This is the beginning of the rapids area. But because the water was low, it wasn't very rapid.|
|Amazing how smooth the rocks are from the water.|
