Exploring Arkansas May 2019

Lake Atalanta, Snake World, Dardanelle Rock & Council Oaks, Fairfield Bay ATV Trails-Falls
Originally built during the old WPA days under President Roosevelt, Lake Atalanta in Rogers is undergoing a revitalization with a whole new generation enjoying its waters. Snake World just outside of Berryville is one man's creation with about eighty venomous and non-venomous snakes – that's much more than at the Little Rock Zoo!  Dardanelle Rock and Council Oaks are two historic landmarks along the Arkansas River. One is a lookout point and Natural Area, and the other is where a treaty was signed under two towering oak trees, in which the Cherokees gave up their lands south of the Arkansas River. The ATV trails in Fairfield Bay provide high adventure, and lead to some scenic waterfalls.
