Lying between the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains, the pools formed by Toad Suck Ferry, Murray Lock and Dam, and Arthur V. Ormond Lock and Dam, reach 80 miles up the Arkansas River from Little Rock, to Dardanelle, Arkansas. This stretch of the river provides excellent boating or fishing with scenic views of mountains and fertile crop land along the river’s banks.
With approximately 19,000 acres of water to accommodate fishermen and boaters, fishing has been excellent since these locks and dams have been completed.
Situated in the eastern edge of both the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains, the area is a haven for nature enthusiasts. Dogwood, Red bud, Wild Plum, and other native flowering trees offer breathtaking sights in the spring. Flaming leaves brighten the hillsides with their changing colors in the fall. It is a welcome scene for any camera "bug" or nature lover.
Paved access roads lead to numerous parks that include drinking water, toilets, boat launching ramps, parking areas, fireplaces, trash containers, tent and trailer spaces, charcoal grills, and picnic tables for the convenience of all.
