Waldron, Arkansas

With a population slightly exceeding 3,000, the western Arkansas town of Waldron offers small-town atmosphere in the midst of the abundant outdoor recreational opportunities available in the Ouachita Mountains and the Ouachita National Forest. Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, scenic driving and other activities are available within the forest. The 960-acre Lake Hinkle, 12 miles west of Waldron, is a popular fishing venue.
