This region of Arkansas is known as the "Timberlands" part of Arkansas or "West Gulf Costal Plains". There are many interesting State Parks and Museums in this area.  You'll find:

  • Beaver Lake State Park is in its initial development.  The park is within the Hobbs State Management Area (HSMA) that covers 11,750 acres along the southern shore of Beaver Lake.  The state park currently offers interpretive programs and undeveloped access to the 28,000-acre lake.

  • Bull Shoals State Park - In the scenic Ozark Mountains, you'll find one of the nation's finest fishing and boating combinations;  the White River and Bull Shoals Lake.

  • Devil's Den State Park is an enchanting park nestled in a picturesque Ozark Valley.  Selected as a park site in the 1930s, Lee Creek Valley provided the materials for the Civilian Conservation Corps to build the park's rustic-style wood and stone structures.  The mountain stream forms a peaceful eight-acre lake before cascading over a magnificent native stone dam.  Hiking, backpacking and mountain biking trails lead to backcountry areas where you can explore caves, crevices and bluff overlooks.

  • Lake Charles State Park - Anglers and nature lovers will enjoy this park on the shore of Lake Charles, 645 acres of spring-fed waters in the Ozark foothills.  The lake offers good catches of bass, crappie, bream and catfish.  The park features 60 campsites (Class A including Preferred sites), and within walking distance are picnic sites, hiking trails, a standard pavilion (screened with ceiling fans), launch ramp, swim beach and playground.

  • Lake Ft Smith State Park - Plans are for the new Lake Forth Smith State Park to open in 2004.  Facilities will include campsites, group lodging, picnic sites, trails, a visitor center, pavilion, pool and marina.  For updates on the progress of the new facilities, please contact the park.

  • Mammoth Springs - Arkansas's largest spring and a National Natural Landmark, flows nine million gallons hourly.  Forming a 10-acre lake, it then flows south as the Spring River, a popular trout and float stream.  Near the spring, the 1886 Frisco Depot will take you back to the early 1900s.  Just outside the train station is a Frisco caboose to tour also.

  • Old Davidsonville State Park - This park preserves the site of historic Davidsonville.  Established in 1815, the town included the Arkansas Territory's first post office, courthouse and land office.  Bypassed by the Southwest Trail, an overland route from St. Louis to the border of Mexico, the town faded by the 1830s.  Today, park exhibits and interpretive tours provide information about this important frontier town.

  • Ozark Folk Center - Sample the rich heritage of lie in the Ozark Mountains through music, crafts, and dance at the Ozark Folk Center.   During the Center's season, artisans demonstrate over 24 homestead skills and crafts in the Crafts Village, a collection of demonstration shops.  Nearby the comfortable, climate-controlled Music Theater hosts life entertainment at 7:30 p.m. six nights a week, plus Sunday Gospel Concerts during season.  Music is played as it was before 1941 with acoustic instruments.

  • Powhatan Courthouse - In the 1800s, this busy river port on the Black River was the chief shipping point for a large territory.  In 1888 high on a hill overlooking the busy riverfront, a Victorian courthouse was built from bricks made on the site.

  • Prairie Grove State Park is recognized nationally as one of America's most intact Civil War battlefields.  The park protects the battle site and interprets the Battle of Prairie Grove, where on December 7, 1862, the Confederate Army of the Trans-Mississippi clashed with the Union Army of the Frontier resulting in about 2,700 casualties in a day of fierce fighting.

  • Withrow Springs - Cradled by the bluffs of the War Eagle River in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, Withrow Springs is a peaceful setting for camping and quiet river floats.  Canoes/shuttle service are available.  Enjoy hiking; swimming; tennis; baseball and softball; the crossbow range; and fishing for catfish, bream, perch and bass.
