Why Arkansas? Because it’s pretty much undiscovered for adventure travel which makes the Arkansas Ozarks a great vacation value! I lived in Mountain Home, Arkansas on Norfolk Lake. The water is crystal clear for fishing, water skiing an even SCUBA diving. The White River is another great area for water sports that is near by. This fast river is dam fed and very cold making is a wonderful fishing area for rainbow trout all year round. You can either fly fish or do a float trip and camp a couple nights on the sandy banks of the river. Kayaking and white water rafting is also good here.
If you’d like some underground fun Blanchard Springs Caverns are about 2 hours away. This is a large 3 level cave system and it’s run by the Federal Government so it’s not as “touristy” as many cave experiences. I have been to this cave several times and always see something new. There are also forest trails within the park to explore while you are in the area.
Give Arkansas and the Ozarks a try for a different and inexpensive trip with your family and friends.
I’d love to help you discover this part of Arkansas!
