Arrow Rock is a village in Saline County, Missouri, United States, located along the Missouri River. This area of the state was called "Little Dixie" because so many early migrants came from the Upper South, bringing their slaves and culture with them.

Although the busiest river port in the county before the American Civil War, the population was 79 as of the 2000 Census (56 as of the 2010 Census). The musical films Tom Sawyer (1973) and Huckleberry Finn (1974), both based on novels by Mark Twain, were partially shot here. Arrow Rock Historic District has significant properties. The George Caleb Bingham House, home of the nationally known painter for several years, has been designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark.
