The photograph below shows Stafford Point at the confluence of the Ouachita and Boeuf Rivers. Stafford Point is the river bank on far left. The Ouachita makes a turn to the left between Stafford Point and the far thin riverbank in the middle of the photo, while the Boeuf River is straight ahead on right side of photo.
