If you enjoy Alley Spring near Eminence or Big Spring in Van Buren, then you'll need to see this one too.

This is a great park. Easily walk-able and the park personnel are friendly and knowledgeable. Great place to park and watch the geese.

We love touring the Arkansas State Parks, and Mammoth Springs is beautiful and interesting all at the same time. The roar of the water is thrilling, and there are several things to see and do. Great place to picnic and spend the day.
