Plenty of living museums are protected as state parks in Arkansas as well. Check out historic structures at the Davidsonville Historic State Park, Historic Washington State Park, the Plantation Agriculture Museum State Park, and many more.
Arkansas also features plenty of unique sites for its many visitors. Dig for – and then keep – diamonds at the Crater of Diamonds State Park, or walk down the 950-foot deck leading the Louisiana Purchase Historic State Park – set right there in the swamp. Try the 27-hole golf course at Village Creek State Park, and don’t miss the Ozark Folk Center State Park found in Mountain View – the Folk Music Capital of the World.
