The Quirky Retreat In Arkansas You Never Knew You Needed To Stay At
Camping doesn’t always mean having to pitch a tent. At Diamond John’s Riverside Retreat you can trade in the ordinary tent camping for a unique teepee experience instead. Let’s head to these rather quirky accommodations for a stay you’ll never forget.
If you've ever wanted to stay in a larger-than-life teepee, Diamond John's is the place to visit.
The retreat has multiple sizes of teepees that can sleep up to four adults and four children. In addition to the activities both at the retreat and just down the road, Diamond John's is worth a weekend. The retreat is located at 81 Roy Rd., Murfreesboro, AR 71958.
The quaint teepees offer an upgraded experience than typical tents.
This may not be a luxurious glamping experience but the teepees are a fun tent-alternative. The queen size beds, A/C, and TV make a classic camp out even more enjoyable. We kind of love the no-nonsense policy given by the owners, "Hypochondriacs, whiners and people with phobias are discouraged from trying their luck at camping in Teepees!" If you're too timid, Diamond John's has cabins as well.
The teepees are right on the Little Missouri River so starting your day with an adventure is quite easy.
Have an early morning fishing for smallmouth bass or take a relaxing paddle after lunch. You can even take a dip during the warmer months.
However, the river isn't the only place to spend your time.
Young campers will enjoy the retreat's numerous activities from petting the two- and four-legged residents to going on a nightly gem hunt. The retreat also supplies digging equipment to take to the Crater of Diamonds State Park. After all, the world's only public diamond mining site is just two miles down the road from the retreat.
This unique experience is one your family will never forget.
Teepees start at $100/night. For more information or to book a stay, visit the retreat's website
