Cotter is a city in Baxter County, Arkansas, United States. Venture out of the city with trips to Tyler Bend Visitor Center (in Marshall) and Harrison (Buffalo National River, Maplewood Cemetery, &more). Spend the 29th (Thu) exploring nature at Big Spring Park. And it doesn't end there: cast your line with Cotter Trout Dock Guided Trout Fishing Tours, see a world frozen in time at Rush Historic District, explore the activities along Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock, and admire the majestic nature at Bull Shoals-White River State Park.

To see ratings, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cotter day trip site.

Houston to Cotter is an approximately 6.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Traveling from Houston in October, expect Cotter to be slightly colder, temps between 73°F and 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can drive to Ponca.
