If you enjoy visiting the state parks in Arkansas, you’ll love exploring Lake Ouachita State Park. Recognized for its crystal-clear lake and proximity to Hot Springs National Park, this place in central Arkansas should be on your weekend adventure list.
Check out the historic Three Sisters’ Springs. This unique site shares what previous owners and visitors to the area claimed the healing waters could do. Each spring is said to cure specific diseases and illnesses.
There are two trails to hike inside the park: the Caddo Bend Trail and Dogwood Trail. There are interpretive signs along the short half-mile Dogwood Trail, and it’s a great hike to learn more about the local wildlife.
If camping isn’t the kind of outdoor getaway you’re looking for, the state park has multiple cabins to stay in. Enjoy full-service cabins with more luxurious amenities like satellite and air conditioning, or rent camper cabins that have a more rustic vibe.
