5: Ouachita National Forest
This last location should be experienced with a multi-day camping trip. It’s the type of place you would love to get lost in—as long as you aren’t actually lost/without your phone, of course. Ouachita has something for everyone here: rivers, mountains, forests, lakes, hiking, biking, horseback, and ATV riding. That’s right, Ouachita is a local favorite for extreme sports riders, too. There’s dedicated trails for each of these activities, so plan your trip ahead of time and experience the best that Hot Springs, Arkansas has to offer!
Address: Ouachita National Forest, Hot Springs, AR 71902
