Woods Fork, which runs through Busiek, has been pretty low for a good while. Not sure on the legality of rockhounding there.

Edit: there are some places on the Finley in Ozark that might not have been hounded yet but a lot of those you can really only get to with a kayak. Be warned, those waters can be treacherous. Some good driftwood down there too

Would also love info on this! As well as where I could find Driftwood. I’m wanting to take my dad out.

There's a lot of driftwood around stockton lake.

Thank you!!!!! He loves to “whittle.”

You're welcome. You could probably find a lot along the shore at Fellows or Tablerock too. I just mentioned Stockton because I go there pretty often and see a lot of it. Every now and then a piece is too cool to pass up and it finds its way into my kayak. :)

I’d love to get my daddy-o into kayaking. Maybe that’ll be my summer 23 goal

That's a fine goal right there. My kayak is my happy place. Btw I believe fellows lake rents kayaks and may even have some intro to paddling classes through the park board. I'm looking forward to taking some sailing lessons out there next summer.

Excellent to know! My dad is in his mid 60s and said it sounded like a good way to drown, so maybe a canoe…lol

I think it's the best way to drown personally. Nah seriously though it's pretty safe. I've been known to take naps in mine. I think the park board also rents canoes but every time I paddle with someone else in the boat we just go in circles. :p

I lovvveee to float. I’m going to get him out there one way or another.

If you go north on 13 you can sometimes find round egg sized rocks called Weableau eggs. They're thought to be the remnants of a meteorite impacting in the weableau area when molten rock flew into the air and cooled into round shapes falling back down.

Not sure what kind of rocks you're looking for, but there is nice calcite out around hall town.
