Yellow Bend Port on the Mississippi River

The Port lies at the convergence of three of North America’s major rivers: the White, the Arkansas and the Mississippi and contains a $3.9 million port and industrial park.

Located directly on the Mississippi just south of Arkansas City, Yellow Bend Port is a slack-water harbor that is easily accessible through a 250-foot-wide entrance to a 350 x 810 foot turning basin. It is convenient to 1-40 and 1-30 and 1-20 in. In addition to port facilities, Yellow Bend has large tracts of land zoned for industrial use.
