Secluded and not well-known this river has remained untamed (no dams block its course) and un-commercialized. Located in the southeast corner of the state this pristine river runs southward through most of McCurtain county. It starts its trek in the southwest corner of the Kiamichi Mountains, parallels US 259 until it flows into the Little River, and turns off to the east.  You can tube on most parts of the Glover River and also the Little River but the crossings are few so you either have to walk back upstream or plan a pick up at the low water bridges the cross the streams at various points. Good fishing there too and lots of scenic views and wildlife.

 There are no concessions available along this river so the prospective floater should have knowledge of topography and experience with unpredictable waters. When the river is low, rocks, logs, and low falls make for a difficult float, and when the river is up, the journey is very dangerous. The only outfitter that even dares to offer ventures (and then only on rare occasions) is Charlie Umstead (405)244-3284
