My husband and I will be travelling in August to visit my parents who just moved to Hot Springs Village. We will be staying with them a couple of nights but would also like recommendations on some good camping & and canoeing nearby. We are already driving from Kentucky so we would rather not drive too far from Hot Springs Village for our camping side trip. (maybe 1 hour or so at most). We will have a small dog who enjoys participating in outdoor activities with us like hiking, canoeing, etc. Any suggestions on good campgrounds/watersports outfitters nearby who will allow our dog to camp & canoe with us?
Also, any suggestions on a nice restaurant in Hot Springs village or surrounding area for my husband & I to have a nice dinner? It will be our first wedding anniversary while we are there.
Thanks in advance!
