“Another beautiful national forest in AR...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

The various national forests/state forests tend to run together in AR, but they sure do provide some awesome scenery and quiet places to explore. We drove through different sections of this national forest on our drive up Scenic Highway 7. We saw some sandstone bluffs, some streams/rivers, some wonderful vistas (often with turnouts) and a few deer. We made a quick stop in the Cove Lake Recreation area, off of Scenic 309. This would be a great weekend spot to enjoy the lake and hike in the forest. It was very quiet, but of course, we went in January! No matter the time of year, this area of Arkansas provides a nice getaway and I am glad we took the time to discover it on our way home to Michigan. Hope one day to be back and explore more in depth.
