Arkansas State Parks

Vacation in the Ozarks!

"A Wonderful Way to Enjoy Yesterday," Arkansas's unique Ozark Folk Center State Park is America's only facility that works at preserving the Ozark heritage and sharing it in an entertaining way. We keep the crafts, music and herblore of the Ozarks alive.
Tap your toes to mountain music at one of your favorite Arkansas state parks located in Mountain View, Arkansas in the heart of the Ozarks. See blacksmithing, pottery-making and more than 18 other pioneer skills and crafts. The Craft Village is open Tuesday through Saturday from April through November. Tickets may be purchased at the General Store. For ticket prices, click on Rates.
Music programs take place Wednesday through Saturday April through September and Tuesday through Saturday evenings in October, through October 25. Celebrity performers and Ozark musicians fill our large auditorium with the sounds of traditional southern mountain music. String band instruments, ballads and Celtic roots dances fill the stage. Join in the dances and sing along with the familiar tunes. Tickets for regularly-scheduled programs may be purchased at the General Store or at the auditorium ticket office. For ticket prices, click on Rates.
 
Sign up for classes to learn to play the dulcimer or autoharp, to jig dance or to grow an organic herb garden. Design your own workshop for the study of the traditional crafts demonstrated here. Browse our Homespun Gift Shop and sample country cooking at our Skillet Restaurant, open seven days a week during the season. All year long you can spend the night in our comfortable duplex studio style Ozark Cabins at Dry Creek in the Arkansas Ozarks. 
 

For the young and young at heart try a treetop adventure at the Loco Ropes high ropes course located adjacent to the parking lot at the Ozark Folk Center. See the Ozarks from a whole new perspective and don't miss the The Flying Pig ZipLine! Individuals and groups welcome.

Visit historic downtown Mountain View, Arkansas, the "Folk Music Capital of the World." Explore the awesome Blanchard Springs caverns. Go trout fishing on the White River or float the Buffalo National Scenic River, and enjoy other nearby attractions. Come to the Ozark Folk Center for a great "learn while you have fun" vacation or a relaxing weekend getaway in the beauty of the Ozarks.
