The One County In Arkansas With Over 100 Waterfalls You’ll Want To Visit
It’s no secret that Arkansas has a plethora of gorgeous waterfalls. We’ve mentioned the ones you can
enjoy in a drive-by, the more hidden falls, and the most unique. There’s one particular area in the state that’s an absolute waterfall paradise. Newton County is overflowing with more than 100 falls (which isn’t even including all of the unnamed ones) but don’t worry, you won’t have to scroll through 100 pictures today. We’re just focused on our top ten favorites in the county.
