The Glover River is one of the last rivers in Oklahoma that remains undammed over its full length. Flowing through McCurtain County in far southeastern Oklahoma near the borders of Texas and Arkansas, the Glover offers about 33 miles of scenic beauty amid some challenging rapids.
The river begins in the southwest corner of the Ouachita Mountains between the Kiamichi River to the west and the Mountain Fork River to the east, flowing generally parallel to US Highway 259.
The east and west fork of the free-flowing Glover River joins the confluence of the Little River to the southeast.
The Glover is not as well-known as other rivers in the state. It has some beautiful stretches of bluffs along its banks, as well as its heavily wooded shoreline.
When the river is up and flowing high, there are several class rapids that appear. These will challenge your skills in a canoe or kayak, so watch the river levels and paddlers must take care on the descent down the river.
