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.

All rentals include life jackets, paddles & shuttle. Reservations recommended. $10 nonrefundable fee per boat is collected at time of reservation and applied toward the rental fee. All rentals require credit card information on file.
