Woolum is 6 to 7.4 miles down a dirt road depending on where you are and how you go.
Richland creek enters the Buffalo River at Woolum and that makes for a lot of water. Lots of gravel bars and good fishing even when the water levels are low. The scenery is spectacular here with lots of wildlife. Also, you won’t have to carry your boat far here. Just drive to the river and drop your boat on.
Visit our hiking page for more info about hikes in the area.
Leave your shuttle car at Baker Ford for a 10.9-mile float. You will do about 1.8 miles an hour. A little faster if the water is higher, slower if the water is on the lower side.
