    Beautiful nature park with waterfalls and crystal clear streams filled with rainbow trout. Lots of activities available such as biking, horseback riding, segway rentals, fishing, ATV trails and a tram tour with animal viewing. There are also cabins for rent. Check the activity pricing on the website if you're on a budget but at least stop by and walk through. It's an amazing place that a family could enjoy the whole day.

  • 9. Morrell Mountain Log Cabins

    Family owned log cabins in Eureka Springs. The Morrell family lives on the property and rents out three beautiful log cabins. The family cabin has a bedroom as well as a loft area. This is the cabin we stayed in. The other two cabins are more suited for couples. There is a shared pool for the three cabins as well.

  • 10. Rowdy Beaver Restaurant & Tavern
    Rowdy Beaver Restaurant & Tavern, Eureka Springs, Arkansas

    Good food at a fair price. The Angus burgers are delicious.
