The Eleven Point River is a 138-mile-long river in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. It originates near Willow Springs, Missouri. It more than doubles in flow when Greer Spring Branch runs into it. Greer Spring adds over 200 million gallons of water per day to the river. The name derives from the Mississippi Valley French word pointe. This refers to a wooded point of land marking a river bend. Voyageurs marked distance by counting these points of land or river bends. The river flows into the Spring River southwest of Pocahontas near the small town of Black Rock.
In 1968 a 44.4-mile stretch was named the Eleven Point National Wild and Scenic River. It is one of the original eight rivers chosen to be part of the United States National Wild and Scenic Rivers System.
This is a beautiful river offering great opportunities for camping, fishing, swimming, floating, canoeing, kayaking, or to just relax on a gravel bar and enjoy the scenery.
Boats with motors regularly use the river, however, there are areas with shallow water, rocks, and logs to be aware of.
