  • Lake Leatherwood is a city park that thinks its a state park. We loved the hiking, swimming and kayak/canoe rentals. Enjoyed bring our pooch to stay at the cabins as well. We will be back.
  • A gem of Arkansas and Eureka Springs. Something for everyone. Can feel a bit dated, but if you are out on the trails none of that matters.
  • Probably one of the best city parks in the country. I love this place.
  • It's a beautiful park with a beautiful lake, the swimming area was closed this time and that is why I gave it 4 Stars not 5.
  • Great hiking trails, can rent boats to go out onto the lake at a reasonable price. Overall great place to spend your weekends.
