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.
Blanchard Springs may just be the perfect place in all of Arkansas. In addition to the caverns, waterfall, and crystal-clear lake, the rec area also has a gorgeous trail. This trail leads to some fantastic swimming holes that will be perfect as the weather continues to warm into summer. Let’s set up camp and start our hike to this refreshing pool.
