Beautiful place just off the White River. Only drawback is it gets really, really crowded on summer days.

This little gem is easy to miss on the White River in Cotter AR. Many picnic tables, rest rooms/changing areas make this a great location to spend a few hours or a day. Plenty of parking!!

What a beautiful spot! A hugh spring gushing thousands of gallons of water in a park like setting. Just a nice place to spend a couple hours.

Huge,beautiful park. Crystal clear stream and butterfly garden. Went there to see the railroad memorial, which is just great, but also explored most of the park. Looks like a great place to fish and to take family for a nice outing.

This is a very nice well kept park with plenty to do. There is a nice play area for the kids, a nice ball field, a little railroad history, good fishing, and a great swimming hole.

Rope swing and cold spring water make this watering hole the best place to beat the heat in the summer time in the Ozarks!
