An excerpt from a recent Eureka Springs feature story:
“Although downtown is the crown jewel of Eureka Springs, family fun certainly doesn’t stop there. For surrounding this vacation community are hills, hollers, and water holes. The Ozark Mountains may afford families stimulating wilderness hiking trails but summer calls for water fun. Nearby venues for families to get wet include three rivers -Kings, White and Buffalo- and three lakes -Beaver, Table Rock and Leatherwood- with those first two being considered “big water”. Many families like to bring their own boats, kayaks and canoes with rentals at area marinas. Numerous picturesque places to swim, such as the beaches at Beaver Dam, can accommodate any sized family’s penchant for splashing.” Read the full release Here
