Paddling & Recreation

Beaver Creek is spring-fed and runs 44 miles from Jackson Mill southwest through wooded ranch land and bluffs and the Mark Twain National Forest and ends up in Bull Shoals Lake near Kissee Mills. We have float trips of various distances. Our unique approach of limiting and spacing the number of canoes or kayaks per trip provides a relaxing and private alternative to overcrowded trips on other local rivers. Beaver Creek provides many opportunities for fishing, swimming and picnicking along the way. We have a country store with all those necessities to make a great time on the creek. We are located 14.7 miles into the creek so we make the perfect location whether you are going upstream to float down or starting here and floating downstream or planning a multi-day trip and need a place to stopover.

We can shuttle you and your equipment to a 5 mile or 8 mile drop off location up Beaver Creek. Shuttle spaces are limited, minimum 48 hour notice required.
