It's one of my favorite places to be....I love Hot Springs. We have a group that goes in May every year and we had 28 folks there this year.
We kayaked from the top of the campground down to paint rock area, I think it's about an 8 mile trip. It was kinda chilly, I guess colder than it normally is when we are up there. When we got there on Wednesday the water was over flood stage a bit and was flowing about 15,000cfs from all the recent rain. By time we made the trip on Saturday in the kayaks it was back below flood stage and only flowing about 5900cfs. It was pretty wild to see that water up like that..
