room shotA Castle in the Making ...
 
Have you ever dreamed of medieval castles? Real strongholds of the past, built with quarried stones, felled oaks, forged tools, and bare hands.  Do you wonder how it felt to raise these fortresses from the ground up, to perform such an amazing feat? Now you can see and participate.
 
The Fortress is Open everyday, Rain or Shine, from 10 am to 6 pm
 Mystic Caverns
 
Harrison, Ar - 7 Miles South

Come Experience a Once-in-a-Lifetime Caving Adventure
through two of Arkansas' most spectacular caves, Mystic Caverns and Crystal Dome Caverns, located in the heart of the Ozarks of Northwest Arkansas. You will follow the path the first settlers to this area traveled as a trained guide escorts you on your tour through Mystic. You'll learn about the "pipe organ" and hear the infamous story of the "spider monkey".

In Crystal Dome you will explore a cave in its pristine form, and see the spectacular eight-story dome. Although their entrances are only 400 feet apart, Crystal Dome was discovered over 100 years after Mystic.
Always a comfortable 59 degrees, guided cave tours leave every 35 - 45 minutes. Remember to bring your camera to capture the breathtaking beauty of these Arkansas caves.
 
Located on Arkansas' Scenic 7 Byway, Eight Miles South of Harrison, Arkansas
and Five Miles North of the Buffalo River.

Pruitt,  Arkansas 13 miles south
 
"The 10-mile float from Ponca to Kyles Landing on the Buffalo River gets my vote as the most scenic in the Ozarks. The way is lined with streaked bluffs, some more than 500 feet high, and many drip with water that sparkles like diamonds . . ."
