Arkansas native, Carol Ann Carson, has written for OnlyInYourState for three years now. She resides in Western Arkansas' Mountain Frontier but calls NWA home as well. The graduate of University of Arkansas - Fort Smith, Carol Ann earned her B.A. in English and will soon be pursing her M.A. in Library Science. She loves exploring the trails around the Buffalo National River and has yet to find a waterfall that wasn't her favorite.
Between the trails, lake, and fulfilling recreational activities it’s surprising that Craighead Forest Park isn’t an official Arkansas state park. Regardless, you’ll fall in love with the whole area as soon as you get out of the car! Let’s pack a picnic and the kids and spend the day at this delightful inner-city oasis.
