  • I was amazed at the volume of water that was flowing over the dam area. There were nice little walkways and sitting areas all around the spring. Pretty butterfly bush near the old cannon. Ducks swimmi...  read more »
  • Loved the visitor's Center. Loads of info. Train Depot museum was terrific and free! Great family outing. 
  • The springs were nice, but guess I expected more. The museum said it was open on Tues., but then a note on the door said only by appointment. 
  • This is a lovely gem of a small state park located on the Arkansas/Missouri border. There is a small visitor center with nice restrooms and a short 0.6 mile interpretive walking trail around the lake (be sure to pick up the trail guide). There are picnic areas with covered pavilions. The spring usually pumps out about 9 million gallons per minute, but the day we visited the meter was reading 13.18 million gallons per minute - probably due to the heavy rains in the area. It is amazing to see a good sized river just appearing out of the ground. The spring is the start of the appropriately named "Spring River" which flows south. When traveling Highway 63 is it a really nice place to stop for a look.
  • This place is really cool! Lots of information. Not just about the spring, but also about the town and other things. Really neat little place.
  • Beautiful Park and Grounds, with a great little Railroad Museum inside an Historic Rail Depot. It is an excellent spot to stop for a rest from the road. The trail is only about a 15 minute walk and quite refreshing. Arkansas really knows how to take care of their state parks!
  • Beautiful! Love to run in the afternoons. So much wildlife.
  • Cool aquarium! All natural
