The Adventure of a Lifetime!
Lake Ouachita is perfect for all sorts of water activities. Rent a boat and head out onto the lake for some quality fishing. Right in the middle of a state park, it also features some fantastic hiking trails in the forests surrounding the lake. It's also been hailed as one of the cleanest lakes in the country. There are two other lakes in the area as well--Lake Hamilton and Lake Catherine, which offer up even more opportunities for fun.
Fishing is perfect here in the Spring, Fall, and Winter. You can also find some big mouthed bass here in the hot Summers.
Right nearby is one of the more interesting attractions in the area--the Arkansas Alligator Farm and Petting Zoo. See real live alligators up close and even touch a real American Alligator! They also have animals of the more fuzzy variety that you can get up close with as well.
Thrills and spills await you at the Magic Springs and Crystal Lake parks, a theme park and water park side by side. The only amusement park in a national park is a great day of family fun. Over 25 rides from thrilling coasters to calmer kiddie rides, there is something for everyone to enjoy here. The water park is filled with speed slides, a lazy river, and a giant wave pool! You'll never run out of things to do in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
