So this was an interesting little stop. It’s a pretty cool view and has a funny name. If you’re just looking for a spot to take a walk or take a picture with the sign, then I would recommend it. But we could have done without it on our trip. We stopped because we didn’t see anything else in the area to do.

Read someone's review and visited just before sunset - so pretty! This is a must see from the drive through beautiful neighborhood to easy parking, lots of walkers, bikers, families, it was a great visit. The bridge goes over the river but part are locks that barges go through to lower part of river. We returned the next day and watched a large load pushed by a "tugboat" and love it. Go here first, you might want to return for the exercise and the view!

A little cool today but nice area to walk. Can walk on bridge (which I think is less than 2 miles) or trail. Parking free. Shelters throughout the park. Restroom located near parking lot.

Definitely stop here if you have the time and are in the area. I don’t think it’s worth a super special trip to see this place, but it’s still neat to see. Watch for the speed humps on the way in. Plenty of parking. Lots of people jogging and riding bikes, so be ready to watch for them.

As a father and a grandfather; the Big Dam Bridge has been a place that my children and grandchildren can walk and talk. We see beautiful landscape along the way. This is in a city park and cost you nothing. Well worth the time spent getting to know your children.

It is a very long bridge and would be fun to cross if one had plenty of time and the weather was good. Unfortunately we didn't have either. It was so hot and we had other things that we had planned. It would have been nice if there was a better maintained park at the entrance. As it was I don't think going out of one's way would be recommended just to look at it.

Great hotel Poor food. Tried the hamburger and it smelled rancid. Exchanged it for pimento cheese.
Tried breakfast with homemade sausage. Perhaps an acquired taste but neither I nor my wife enjoyed it.

A Big Dam Bridge to enjoy the Dam. Anyone can walk or bike on the the Big Dam Bridge.

We could stay as long as we wanted and see how the dam works. It is free.

I really liked my time here. It was worthwhile.

This is a great place to get away and enjoy a walk along the river. You can drive right to the bridge and begin your walk. Lots of informative signs detailing the different fish as well as how the hydroelectric dam works. Next time, I go, I want to walk it at night.

Nice walk across the Arkansas River. Bathrooms available in the parking lot and also at the park that is a mile away. Interesting - wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if in the area for a day or two, it's a good thing to do.
