Ouachita National Forest reviews
As you drive along the road of the entrance, a sign reads that the park closes at 5pm but park brochures and other literature reads that is open until 11pm. I'm not sure what's correct information. more »
We went on two different hiking trails each with their own challenges. The shorter Dogwood Trail had some steep climbs but we easily finished the hike in 20 minutes. The longer 4-mile Caddo Bend... more »
We spent a fun day at the state park here. The swimming beach by the 3 Sisters Springs is the best place for a swim. The water was clear and refreshing and there are picnic tables with grills next to.... more »
Very awesome place. The water was low when I visited the lake. The forest consists of multiple species of trees and fowl. This is an awesome place to bird watch. I actually saw a few bald eagles there as well. This is a really good place to visit during the spring when the water levels or normal. The lake was really great for kayaking. Also, after viewing real estate prices in the area, this would be a very affordable place to retire.
There were so many trees in this forest that I stopped naming then all after about twenty minutes. If you see You the Pine Tree, say "hi!". Love the Ouachita National Forest! So much fun to ride the bike through on a hot & humid Arkansas day!
The surrounding park was great with a few locations to stop and eat with the family, walk the dog or go hiking. Overall and excellent location, be aware the tower itself is located up a steep series of step or by car a series of switch backs. I would recommend using a vehicle if you're aren't up for a fairly physical uphill walk.
Beautiful. Went with friends who do a week long camp/trail ride annually. Ride right up to a little hole in the wall bar on private property right off a trail, in the middle of nowhere. Camp spots are very nice, each has good accommodations for your horses. The bathrooms/showers are super clean/nice. Everything is well maintained. Great place all around.
Awesome! God's beauty of mountains and trail rides beyond the imagination. Love the difference trees and flowers Sprngs running over the rocks. Cool water and love to put my feet in.
