Arkansas Has A Grand Canyon And It’s Too Beautiful For Words

Who knew Arkansas had a Grand Canyon? While it may not be as deep as the one out West, the canyon here in the Natural State offers some truly breathtaking views. It’s located along gorgeous Scenic Byway 7 and is only a few miles from the town of Jasper. Along Scenic Byway 7 you’ll find places to pull off the road and gaze out at the vast Big Creek Valley. There’s also a lookout tower and spots where you can book a stay.

You can book a stay on the Arkansas Grand Canyon by visiting the website of Cliff House Inn. If they’re all booked up, look for other lodging at the Buffalo River Regional Chamber.
