Mammoth Spring State Park


Mammoth Spring is Arkansas's largest spring and the second largest spring in the Ozark Mountains. A National Natural Landmark, the spring flows nine million gallons of water hourly. Forming a scenic 10-acre lake, it then flows south as the Spring River, a popular Ozark trout and float stream. Located near the spring, the park's 1886 Frisco depot will take you back in time to an early 1900s train station. Parked just outside the train station is a Frisco caboose to explore, too.

Here at the picturesque park, remnants of a mill and hydroelectric plant also reflect Mammoth Spring's history.

This place is one of those you can go to and just enjoy the beauty though out the whole year. Year after year. Great for all ages. We love this place!

Neat place to visit. Usually make a trip there to enjoy some cold water when we come to west plains to race

Nice place to catch a dam and the spray from it was very inviting. Love the history of how the dam and 2 others were built

It is a beautiful park. It's well maintained with flowers and trees. There are places for picnics, photography, and places for children to play. The walking trail around the spring has many sites to see. The tourist information center has many great souvenirs and wonderful staff.

Not much here. Was disappointed. The water was slimmy and covered in algae. The museum and paddle boats were both closed for lunch. The prettiest thing was the water spilling over the damage into the river.
