Springtime in the Ozark Mountains is a magical time! Time to get OUT(side) and enjoy!
With so much to do and see, we asked one of our favorite locals why she decided to make their favorite vacation get-a-way their permanent home. Here is what she told us:
- Crystal Clear Lakes
Rent a boat or bring yours; go fishing, skiing, paddleboarding, or just soak in the beautiful lake scenery with a cold beverage in hand and good friends by your side.

- Scenic Winding Rivers
“No trip to The Ozarks Southern Region is complete without a float down the Buffalo National River!”
This National Park Region is just a one hour drive from Eureka Springs. The upper Buffalo, where Ponca is located, offers the river’s—and Arkansas’—finest scenic beauty. With its massive towering bluffs, countless waterfalls, watchable wildlife, ties to both historic and prehistoric cultures, and remote unspoiled location, the upper Buffalo River wilderness is surely mid-America’s finest outdoor destination. Floating, Hiking and Wildlife Watching are favorite activities.

Located conveniently just minutes from Eurea Springs is one of the few remaining free-flowing rivers in the country, The Kings River in Arkansas begins in the Boston Mountains of the Ozark National Forest and flows Northward for more than 90 miles where it empties into Table Rock Lake at the Missouri State line. This family friendly river flows casually past massive rock bluffs, shady tree-lined banks, crystal clear pools, and sloping gravel bars. You will discover wonderful spots for Arkansas Canoe Trips, swimming, picnicking, fishing, camping, and observing wildlife.
