Bring your dog with you to Arkansas.

Arkansas? More Like Barkansas!

No need to leave your furry family member at home during your next Arkansas visit. The Natural State understands the bond between man and his best friend – and here are a few of our favorite points of proof.

St. Francis National Forest

You and Fido both could use a stretch after your travels, and the 22,000-acre St. Francis National Forest offers plenty of opportunities for just that. While technically one of the smallest national forests in the country, visitors will find no shortage of opportunities for hiking, swimming, fishing and scenic drives – and dogs are welcome for all of it.

Not enough room?

To really get out in the open, look to Ozark National Forest, where 1.2 million acres of lush, rugged and diverse terrain lends itself to all kinds of outdoor adventures. 

Murray Park Off-Leash Park

pet-friendly AR Attractions

Take Fido for a ride through AR.

Conveniently located in Little Rock, Murray Park Off-Leash Park invites dogs of all sizes to come out and play. There's a larger area for dogs over 30 pounds and another for dogs under 30 pounds, both with large tubs for drinking as well as tall grass and trees to set the mood. Cant get out before the sun goes down? No problem – the park is lighted at night.

Hot Springs Bark Park

To the southwest in Hot Springs, Hot Springs Bark Park is another great place to let Fido off his leash. From dawn to dusk, seven days a week, dogs of all sizes and breed are invited to socialize with new, furry friends and, best of all, it's free for Mom and Dad.

Lake Wilson Off-Leash Area

Visiting the University of Arkansas? Planning to catch a Razorbacks game? Why not bring Fido along for your Fayetteville visit? With a convenient, central location, the Lake Wilson Off-Leash Area is clean, well groomed, and friendly, with both sunny and shady places to play.

Fort Smith Dog Park

Your four-legged friend can get wet and wild with like-minded canines at Fort Smith Dog Park in Fort Smith. The fenced-in park promises pups a pond, water stations, and more, with benches where owners can relax.

War Eagle Cavern

pet-friendly AR Attractions

Plenty of pet-friendly fun awaits in AR.

Looking for a little more excitement? How about War Eagle Canyon, in Rogers, just south of Bentonville. It's the only cave in the area that allows dogs. There, a guide will regale you and Fido with information about caves, letting you touch – and sniff – the walls along the way. Hours of operation are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Bentonville Bark Park

For a bit more traditional dog park experience in Bentonville, check out Bentonville Bark Park. There are large-dog and small-dog sections here, as well as a middle section with a variety of agility and play equipment. The scenic surroundings make for a great place to relax while your dog runs wild with new friends.

Pine Mountain Village

Looking to do a little shopping? Bring your dog along with you to Pine Mountain Village in Eureka Springs. It's an open-air Victorian-style shopping district in a park-like setting, where a wide variety of retailers provide something for just about anyone. 

Check the schedule before your visit – Pine Mountain Village is also known to host a variety of special events throughout the year.
