New Highway 62 Access on King's River

Recommended Posts

Read in NWA Democrat-Gazette last Tuesday that the Game and Fish Access at the 62 Bridge has been moved to the other side of the river.

It is on the North Side of the river, by the mouth of Osage Creek. Clearly signed on Highway 62, and is named after J D Fletcher. (Thanks to Flip Putthoff of the newspaper for passing this suggestion on to Ron Duncan, former G & F Commissioner.)

New access is much easier on vehicles, and a safer place to park and launch. This is good news since the old south side access was always a mess.

OK, we finally got to find this place. It is NOT clearly signed on the highway. Plus the "Old" Access sign is still up, adding further confusion.

Heading toward Berryville from Eureka, there is a Gravel Turnout on the right, just before you go over the bridge. This is the access.

The access does have a sign, you just can't see it from the road. About a 5 yard carry down steep bank to the river from the parking lot.

Still a vast improvement from the old access.

Hope this helps
