Arkansas’ appeal as a destination is easily summed up by its official nickname, The Natural State. Surrounded by the Mississippi River, the Ozarks, and the Ouachita Mountain Ranges, it’s truly a natural wonderland. This destination is filled with rich farmland, scenic byways, and crystalline waterbodies so beautiful that people once believed they could heal. Its top city destinations — Eureka Springs, Hot Springs, and Little Rock — offer fantastic resort town facilities and easy access to the state’s most beautiful lakes and streams. These crystalline water bodies include the scenic Lake Hamilton south of Hot Springs, Lake Ouachita nestled within Ouachita National Forest and Lake Dardanelle located between the National Forests of Ozark and Ouachita. Experience the healing atmosphere of Arkansas’ most pristine lakes and streams. Here are the best lakefront cabins in Arkansas, USA, to help you plan your trip to the Natural State.
