Illinois River Float Trips and Camping: The Illinois River in Tahlequah offers a gentle, moderate current and plenty of canoe, kayak and raft outfitters along its scenic banks, making it a favorite float trip destination
Tahlequah, OK - The Illinois River. I grew up visiting this river at least 3 times a summer. My husband and I now take our children every chance we get. It is beautiful in Tahlequah, the water is clear and cool and the float trips are some of the most fun you can have in Oklahoma.
Cave-Spring along the Current River. Not too long ago the only access to this beautiful location was from the river. Recently some nice folks built a really great trail (~5 miles round trip) that starts at Devil's Well (another great Ozark exemplar of karst topography).
