Growing up in Arkansas and canoeing on the Spring, Buffalo and Illinois Rivers, I didn't expect much in the way of scenery when we set out for a family canoe trip down the Strong River. I was pleasantly surprised! Other than the water being low - resulting in a fair amount of dragging of our aluminum canoe (which I haven't canoed in in over ten years!) - it was a fantastic river with gorgeous scenery. Couple that with the fact that the put-in is at the D'Lo Water Park - where the "siren" scene from O Brother, Where Are Thou? was filmed - and you've got a great experience!
