The Eleven Point River
Randolph County is the only county in Arkansas, perhaps in America, that has five large, navigable rivers, including the Black River, our largest river, that flows behind The St. Charles as it passes by Pocahontas.
Our pride and joy, though, is the Eleven Point River, our longest and most beautiful river. While there’s debate over where the Eleven Point got its name, there’s no debate over it being the best kayaking and canoeing river in the county. Originating just over the state line in southern Missouri’s Ozarks and the Mark Twain National Forest, the Eleven Point enters the county as a fast-flowing white water stream, cuts the county in half from north to south and leaves the county as it joins the Spring River and the Black River to become a slower-flowing bottomlands river.
