Take the Fouke exit off Interstate 49 for an interesting pit stop with some cool photo opportunities. Monster Mart is basically a old convenience store with one small restroom, but lots of snacks & "Bigfoot" monster stuff. "The Legend of Boggy Creek" movie was about the Fouke monster. Most everyone will enjoy the sights & taking a picture with a... More

I grew up with the Legend of Boggy Creek. It scared the be-Jesus out of me so when I found out that Fouke was so close to where my boyfriend and I travel to and from Texas, we added it to our list of "Fun Roadside Attractions To Visit". We finally were able to stop in October 2014. I was... More

I was traveling through the area, so I decided to make a pit stop at the Monster Mart. I was kinda disappointed. The selection of souvenirs were lacking and the museum was run-down. They did have a neat painting of the monster.

After seeing a story about the Fouke Monster on TV, my kids were obsessed with finding him since we live a few hours away. So off we went in search of the monster. We found this store easily enough and were so excited to be there. Upon entering, I was sad to see that the museum part of the store... More

This little store is the unofficial "home" the Fouke Monster made famous in the film, "Legend of Boggy Creek". You can find a mini museum, a mural and, across the street, the best photo op in Arkansas. The store sells just about everything and has a good selection of Fouke Monster tshirts and souvenirs. I thought it was great fun!
