Get There Early

Very nice place to eat. Large portions and the food is very good. Get there early as lines form pretty quickly. Service is great.

The State of Arkansas brags about it's being the "NATURAL STATE." This area of the state, while very much 'natural,' has enough quality, man-made improvements, to make your hiking, viewing, fishing, picnicking, snoozing, dreaming and just plain having an invigorating time, very easy indeed ! And yet, you won't lose the feel of being in the great outdoors. Wildlife is... More

Fishing, walking on the wooden pathway to discover the secrets hidden in the forest from ages past. Sunshine and waterfalls, an eerie emerald lake that makes the viewer feel immediate serenity. A must see.

It was an interesting visit but we felt it was a bit limited in what it had to offer. The mill itself was not operating. The staff were very good and friendly and the goods on sale were very reasonably priced. The restaurant was on the top floor, which was a little awkward but the prices were fair and the... More

Loved the Old Mill. It was Educational and Fun. Lots if dust but that is expected in a Mill. Lots if fun educational things to do in Mt Veiw and go by Marie's and eat or get you some ice cream!!

The mill itself was closed as it was too early in the season but the surrounding scenery was stunning. Great hiking trail.

These reviewers are talking about two different places! The one titled "Located in the Ozark National Park" (should be National Forest, there is no National Park here!) is referring to the empty rock shell of an old grist mill located just downstream from the spring that comes out of Blanchard Caverns. In a sense, it is open all the time... More

Included in the ticket price of the cave tour, it is an old mill site with part of the structure still standing, great photo ops, close to the dam and springs are about 1/2 mile upstream. Well maintained walkways make easy access for everyone.

Is this place even open? Every time we go we try to go as this is the last thing in Mountain View we have not done and so far we can't catch anyone there.
