Region/State: Arkansas

Arkansas, often referred to as “The Natural State,” is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. The diverse geography of Arkansas, ranging from the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains to the dense forests and expansive delta, provides a playground for a variety of activities. The state’s numerous state parks and recreation areas offer opportunities for hiking, biking, and horseback riding along scenic trails. Water sports are particularly popular given Arkansas’s abundance of rivers and lakes; activities such as fishing, kayaking, and canoeing are prevalent, especially on the Buffalo National River and the White River. Rock climbing enthusiasts regularly flock to the towering bluffs in the Ozarks, while the state’s crafted mountain biking trails in places like Bentonville are nationally renowned. Furthermore, the mild winters allow for year-round camping and hunting, drawing visitors who wish to immerse themselves in Arkansas’s rich natural landscape and biodiversity.
