Arkansas is a state that is divided by the broad swath of the Arkansas River and bordered to the east by the Mighty Mississippi. The "Natural State" is home to high wooded escarpments, plunging sandstone gorges and flat plains of lush farmland. Harrison and Boone county are in North Central Arkansas which is often called the crossroads of the Ozarks. Newton County to the south is the center of the Boston Range of the Ozarks and the origin point for the Buffalo National River.
Arkansas is a Natural
Arkansas has earned distinction as the Natural
State as not only in recognition of the incredible
natural beauty of our state, but also for the diversity
of landscapes to be found here. The two major natural
regions consist of the interior highlands in the northwestern
third of the state and the flat coastal plains which comprise the
rest of the state. The highlands include the wooded rises and
numerous caves of the Ozark Mountains, the narrow ridges of
the Ouachita Mountains and the deep folds of the Arkansas River
