Strawberry River: US 167 to AR 58 in Poughkeepsie Professional Review and Guide
"The Strawberry River begins in Fulton County, west of Salem, Arkansas, and flows southeast through farmland to its confluence with the Black River north of Newport, Arkansas. Area residents have waged several battles to keep it from being dammed. The most notable concerned the Bell Foley Dam Project, which was defeated with the help of the Ozark Society. Paddlers can expect a relatively easy but remote stream that combines a leisurely float with good scenery.
The Strawberry River cuts through the rolling foothills of the Ozarks. Hardwood forests of oak, pecan, and elm trees line the banks, blocking all but an occasional view of the abundant farmland. The water exhibits the familiar green tint found on many Ozark streams. It flows at a leisurely pace that affords paddlers time to enjoy the peaceful sounds of wildlife and the beautiful scenery."
