History and nature collide amongst Arkansas’ many state parks. The Natural State is home to more than 50 – each one more stunning than the last. Northern Arkansas is known for the stunning scenery of the Ozarks, much of which is yours for the exploring in many state parks. Check out the sprawling Mount Magazine State Park, and enjoy all the water sports you can handle at Bull Shoals-White River State Park, Crowley's Ridge State Park, and Lake Frierson State Park.

Civil War battle sites are also a sight to see throughout the Natural State. Don’t miss Marks' Mills Battleground State Park, Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park, and Poison Springs State Park. Archeological artifacts are found at Parkin Archeological State Park, Hampson Archeological Museum State Park, and the Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park.

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.

Whether you’re enjoying the view in the Ozarks, or touring the sturdy structures of historic Arkansas, the many parks of the Natural State are sure to please.
