Welcome to Withrow Springs State Park
Surrounded by the mountains of northwest Arkansas, this 786-acre park of unspoiled Ozark beauty is accented by the setting of scenic mountains and valleys spread along the bluffs of the meandering War Eagle River. Withrow Spring, namesake of the park, was named for Richard Withrow, a settler who came west in 1832 from Tennessee and established the first grist mill in the area. The spring’s clear, cold waters gush from a small cave at the foot of a bluff across from the park swimming pool complex. For lovers of the great outdoors, Withrow Springs State Park and the surrounding countryside offer an abundance of nature at its best. A leisurely drive along State Highway 23 to Huntsville and east on Highway 412 provides miles of unsurpassed Ozark scenery. Highway 62 at Alpena will lead you over hills and valleys just 48 miles north of Harrison. Another breathtaking drive leads from Huntsville on Highway 23S over the Boston Mountains of the Ozarks to Interstate 40 at the town of Ozark. Some of the most striking mountain scenery in the state can be seen along this 48-mile drive. Historic Eureka Springs, just 20 miles north on Highway 23, offers a unique look into the late Victorian era. Narrow, winding streets, quaint shops and excellent restaurants provide a full day of sightseeing. War Eagle Creek and Kings River, flowing north from their headwaters in the Boston Mountains, are unexcelled in nature’s handiwork. During spring a canoe trip down either river angling for fighting smallmouth bass and goggle-eye offer relaxation at its finest. A put-in point on the scenic War Eagle is located at Withrow Springs. A put-in point for floating the famed Buffalo National River is only 38 miles southeast of the park. Whether you prefer to hike the park’s dogwood-studded trails, enjoy the swimming pool, or take a drive in the countryside exploring this magnificent section of the Ozarks, Withrow Springs State Park provides something for everyone to enjoy.
