Where to stay in Arkansas
Arkansas hotels cover every possible budget, ranging from upmarket hotel chains such as Best Western to independently run, good value options. Some of them are housed in historical buildings.
For something different, try a houseboat holiday on Lake Ouachita, Norfolk Lake, DeGray Lake or Arkansas River.
Arkansas is sprinkled with mountains, lakes, rivers, forest and prairies, offering unrivalled scenic beauty. Amid this, there are more than 200 publicly accessible campgrounds in Arkansas spread throughout 1,700 state parks, national parks, forests plus wildlife refuges. A camping holiday in Arkansas is a great way to enjoy the state's natural assets and a range of outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing and hunting.
Well serviced campsites are available at DeGray Lake Resort State Park, Lake Catherine State Park, Lake Charles State Park and Petit Jean State Park. Yurts with electricity, wood floors, windows and a lockable door can be reserved one year in advance (www.arkansasstateparks.com) at all four of these state parks.
