The Underrated Arkansas Spring That Just Might Be Your New Favorite Summer Destination

Big water parks are fun, but we Arkansans tend to enjoy a more naturally setting. The naturally spring-fed pool at the Charlton Recreation Area is the perfect summer swim spot. Let’s take a dip in this perfectly-chilly getaway.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
