In recent years, our region has come to be known worldwide for its unusually rich trout-fishing waters. Some estimates have placed the current volume of trout in the White River at 1000 per square mile; that's roughly ten times the population of trout in widely-acclaimed trout-fishing destinations in other parts of the United States.
Due to changes brought about after its damming in the 1970's, the White River and its tributaries are now uniquely equipped for trout to flourish dramatically. The rivers were stocked with trout by the Arkansas Game and Fish Comission in the years after the damming; since that time, they have multiplied in staggering numbers.

One of the most popular Ozark destinations, The Buffalo National River offers beautifully situated and well-maintained camping grounds. Scenic mountain bluffs rise above this remarkably clean river, which contains plenty of stretches smooth enough to be enjoyed by canoers of all ages. Canoe rental and launch sites are located about an hour's drive away from our Big Bear properties.

Bull Shoals and Norfork Lakes
These two large lakes offer nearly 1500 miles of coastline, with a host of recreation opportunities, including fishing, skiing, camping, and a lot more.

Long associated with folk legend Jimmy Driftwood, who lived on a nearby ranch for most of his lifetime, Mountain View is still a haven for old-time country and folk musicians. Almost any day of the week in the warm season, visitors can go to the town square and hear a mix of seasoned and amateur musicians playing informal sessions of live acoustic music. At peak season on a Saturday night, listeners will find as many as ten or twelve different groups of musicians playing all around the square.
For those interested in a day trip, Mountain View offers a wealth of shopping and dining opportunities as well.
