Arkansas ... True Beauty

Take a deep breath of cool Ozark or Ouachita mountain air. Revel in the breeze blowing off a lake or enjoy a relaxed family float trip. If a faster pace is more your scene, try a whitewater rafting or rock climbing adventure. Journey one of 250 hiking trails that collectively stretch more than 1,500 miles. Get away from it all in more than 2.9 million acres in three national forests.

With some 9,000 miles of pristine streams and rivers and more than 600,000 acres of lakes, Arkansas is renowned for fishing and hunting and water sports of all sorts, including sailing and scuba diving. Marinas, boat docks and fishing guide services are plentiful across the state.
