  • Drove up from Horseshoe Bend where we were spending several days as it seemed this was the only sight to see in the area. At first, thought we were going to be disappointed, but as we walked around.....  more »
  • Pretty cool short stop. Nice place to walk around and check out the water. There is plenty of space to move around and snap some pictures. It's very well kept.  more »
  • Mammoth Spring State Park may be small, but it is big in activities. The Spring is huge as indicated by its name. Come enjoy some of the many educational projects designed for children 0 to 100. I especially like The Bluebird Day Program as I have hosted it for years. The Tree ID and Birds of Prey Programs are great too. Beautiful Park🐦🌈
  • Always a pleasant stop when driving US 63 across the MO/AR state line. There is something refreshing seeing all the water come over the spillway. When the weather is agreeable a walk along the shores of the spring is nice. A major improvement in the visitors center rest rooms is about complete as well. The road from Hardy to the park has been improved the greatly over the past couple of years also.
