Let’s fill the river with people!
Groups and individuals are invited to join us in The 4th Annual Great Eleven Point River Float, to be held Saturday, July 10, 2021, hosted by the Randolph County Tourism Association and sponsored by Perry Properties LLC.
Our goal is to see how many people we can get for a float on our county’s finest floating river. The winner will receive a large trophy and a $100 cash prize. Join your neighbors to float the beautiful, shady 11 Point!
Participants are free to travel at their own pace. The prize will be awarded to the group with the most participants, not to the fastest to cover the course. There is no charge to participate.
Participants will put-in between 9 a.m. and noon on July 10. The float begins at 9931 HWY 93, the site of the former Woody’s Campground, four miles north of Dalton on Highway 93, and ends at the river access point at Dalton.

Participants must furnish their own boats, tubes, kayaks, or canoes—only one motorized boat allowed per group. Motorized craft must put in/take out at the Dalton river access. No motorized craft allowed on the 9931 Hwy 93 property. Proper safety gear such as life preservers must accompany each vessel. Groups are responsible for their own take-out transportation at Dalton.
Signup sheets are available at the Pocahontas Visitor Information Center at the Old train Depot, or online at http://www.arkansasguesthouse.com/downloads/Float-Sign-Up.pdf. Signup sheets must be turned in by Friday, June 28 or at the event.
