Things To Do



Take a drive along Crowley's Ridge Parkway, a 212-mile scenic byway with dramatic views along the hills and ridges where wildflowers proliferate throughout spring, summer, and fall. Travel through natural and historical sites such as Chalk Bluff Battlefield Park, a Civil War battle site, the grave of Billy DeMint, the Parkin Archeological site, and the St. Francis National Forest.

The several state parks along the route offer visitors a variety of outdoor adventures. Village Creek, Lake Frierson, Crowley's Ridge and Lake Poinsett State Parks, all in Arkansas, offer a variety of recreational features including shaded campgrounds, boat rentals, and acres of water to fish at their beautiful lakes. Catch a bucket full of bass, bream or catfish, and fry up a feast before you camp underneath the boughs of tall shade trees. Near the northern end of the byway in Missouri, admire more of the plant life of Crowley's Ridge on the hiking and biking paths of Jim Morris State Park.
