New Whitewater Park Under Construction on Illinois River

A new 30-acre whitewater park is coming to the Arkansas-Oklahoma border just south of Siloam Springs. The WOKA Whitewater Park will be constructed on the Illinois River at the site of the old Lake Frances spillway in Oklahoma. It will include a 1,200-foot long, 100-foot wide side channel with eight drop-features to create wave actions for kayakers, surfers and tubers of all skill levels.
