Not Many Arkansans Know About This Secret Overlook With The Most Awe-Inspiring Views

Some overlooks like Artists Point or the peak of Mt. Nebo are well-known treasures. Others, like today’s feature, are well-kept secrets. It may not have quite the grandeur of hiking a mountain, but the McClure Amphitheater sure is a lovely little spot for a picnic with a view. Let’s bring a camera and head to this beautiful spot on the hill.
