“Best I Have Visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have been to two of the nature centers built in Arkansas by the Game and Fish Commission, the one at Pine Bluff and in Little Rock. Of the three Crowley's Ridge is hands down the most beautiful and interesting. The center is in a beautiful area on the edge of town on a hilltop on a part of the ridge. There are the usual exhibits of animals and nature, but the most impressive event at the center is the 15 minute film showing the history of the ridge. It is accompanied by lightning, rain, as mist is channeled through a fan into the audience and the most authentic feeling and sounding earthquake short of being in one. The seats vibrate and you would swear the place was going to come apart. There was only one staff member on duty when we got there, but he was friendly and very helpful. Sometimes game and Fish employees are not the most personable, but he was an exception. The outside is well maintained with flowers and bushes and looked like a large garden. I would drive back the 150 miles to see it again.

“Okay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

This place is more for old people, or people that want to knowing about Jonesboro.AR. It needs more to look at.

Very nice place to take kids. Has both indoor and outdoor areas and shows a bit about the geography of the area as well as the animals and history.
