Arkansas ... what to see?

I may have cause to cut through Arkansas on a trip out West.

If that works out, is there anything to see or do or any great place to stay in that state?

I've only driven through, and that was a long time ago.

Did stop to look at Little Rock Central High School, for its historic value, but that's the extent of my Arkansas adventures.

Anywhere in North Central and Northwest Arkansas. There are a lot of COE parks and State Parks that are hard to beat. The Southern part is mostly flat.

I’ve also seen where people have stayed at a park just across the river from the Clinton Presidental Museum and walked across a bridge to visit the museum and downtown Little Rock.

There is a great corps of engineer lake called Beaver Lake in NW Arkansas.
So clean and clear that that is where divers go to certify for open water dives.

It will be extremely humid there in summer; you will need AC.

Crystal Bridges museum in Bentonville is a great experience if you are into that kind of thing.
Museum is architecturally interesting, free admission (special exhibits will have a fee), and has American Art. On their grounds is a real Frank Loyd Wright home that they moved there from New Jersey.

I live in the area:
1. If you'd like browse the downtown brewery/distillery and the Clinton library, the "Downtown Riverfront RV park is on the river and next to I-30. The pads are bit close together, and there is "city noise" but the paved walking trails can take you 8miles up river on one side and back down the other. The Clinton Library is very enlightening, and cheap if you have "vet" tags.
2. IF you'd like a quiet river-and-woods scene, the COE "Maumelle Park" is on the south side of river, off of HWY 10. Low cost, woodsy, and close to "Pinnacle Mountain" state park. Many visitors like to hike up to the top of the mountain for great views, but it will challenge the knees.
3. If you like "secluded" and off the grid scene, "Wooly Hollow" State Park is down in a small ravine. Very woodsy with great trails, nice little fishing lake and canoes. NOTE: there is a chance you'll get "one-bar" of cell signal on the edge of the lake, but plan on NO WIFI, Cable, or Cellular. It's off Hwy 65 north of Conway. Small and peaceful!
4. Petit Jean State park is best accessed via I-40 near the town of Morrillton. It has a steep climb to the park on top of the mountain, but it is heavy forest, lots of trails, small fishing lake, caves, waterfall, and a new lodge restaurant with a fantastic view. Its name comes from an interesting historical connection the French Explorers who "discovered" the Arkansas River. There is also a commercial automobile museum with a decent collection if you're into old cars.

Hello, WhereStream - Arkansas is a beautiful state!
We spend quite a bit of time there exploring.
Our suggestions would be to stay at Lake Ouachita State Park just north of Hot Springs and take a day trip into Hot Springs to visit bath house row and be a tourist for a day. This area has comedy events and lots of restaurants.
A day trip to Mountain Harbor Resort has a great restaurant and spa.
On your way out of the state a night a Devil's Den State Park is just south of Fayetteville. Great drive and beautiful terrain.
Have fun enjoying this great state.

We were thinking of taking a spring break trip to Arkansas to go fishing, but have heard that early/mid-March is too cold for the fish to bite. Does anyone know if this is true? Where is the best fishing during this time of year?

Thanks in advance!

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville. It's tucked out of the way in the northwest, but it is worth a detour. Also, Bentonville is the site of the first Walton (WalMart) store, which is now its own museum.

Most of the best sites mentioned above. However, you might search on winery RV parks. There is a catfish place with their own RV park not too far from I40. The White river is supposed to have good trout fishing. There is the Russell Knife factory in Rogers. The drive through the Ozark Forest is quite nice. And then there is the whole of the Arkansas Mississippi river delta area to see and explore.

Have fun, but travel safe. Pat
