Where are we going today?

Enjoy traditional American folk culture, crafts, music, and festivals in the Ozark Mountains!

"A Wonderful Way To Enjoy Yesterday" Here's an adventure to yesterday's Ozark Mountain way of life that you can see, touch and enjoy today. Arkansas's unique Ozark Folk Center State Park is America's only facility that works at preserving the Ozark heritage and presenting it in such an entertaining way. Tap your toes to mountain music. See blacksmithing, pottery-making and over 18 other pioneer skills and crafts. Learn to play the dulcimer or autoharp, to jig dance or to grow an organic herb garden. Design your own workshop for the study of the traditional crafts demonstrated here. Browse our gift shop. Sample great cooking at our Skillet Restaurant. Spend the night in our comfortable duplex studio style Cabins at Dry Creek. Visit historic downtown Mountain View, Arkansas, the "Folk Music Capital of the World." Explore the awesome Blanchard Springs caverns; go trout fishing on the White River or float the Buffalo National Scenic River; and enjoy other nearby attractions. Come to the Ozark Folk Center for a great "learn while you have fun" vacation or a relaxing weekend getaway in the beauty of the Ozarks.

Now featuring the Loco Ropes high wire adventure course plus the Flying Pig Zipline!
