Ozark, Arkansas

An Arkansas River city, Ozark represents small-town living surrounded by unspoiled mountains, rivers, forests and lakes. The quintessential square is filled with window store fronts full of antique and gift shops, crape myrtle shrubs in bloom summer through fall, and a park across from the courthouse. Murals can be found throughout the city. Evening brings on the beautiful lights on an arching bridge that reflect off the river. Ozark Lake and the Arkansas River provide plenty of fishing opportunities. Tree-shaded Aux Arc Park stretches along the river from the Ozark Lock and Dam and has a playground, campsites, boat launching ramps and other facilities. Within miles of Ozark are the Mulberry River and White Rock Mountain Recreation Area in the Ozark National Forest.Located on Interstate 40, Ozark is 5 miles from Arkansas Wine Country, about 40 miles from Fort Smith and about 120 miles from Little Rock.
