Places near overhangs, rivers, lakes, and springs are the best places to find arrowheads. I have had the most luck finding arrowheads reasonably near rather than in or right beside rivers. A camp would have been set up near a river but on high ground, away from potential flooding.
Where are Indian arrowheads found?
The best places to hunt for ancient arrowheads are the ones that have been dug up or naturally disturbed recently, such as plowed fields, construction sites and creek or river beds where arrowheads have been washed away from one area and deposited to another.
Where can I find arrowheads in fields?
Another common place to find arrowheads are worked agriculture fields. Native American camps often were positioned on rises along rivers and high ridges overlooking natural flood plains. Tillage can expose plenty of artifacts buried beneath the surface, and serious rock hunters key in on turned dirt.
