Arkansas was pretty much a pass through state, but ending up being so much more! We entered into the state while crossing the big ol' Mississippi River. Crossing the Mississippi River was a huge milestone in our road trip. We were really heading west now. We mainly just needed a place to sleep while passing through Arkansas and stumbled upon this amazing lakeside campground. We pulled in right as the sun was setting and the view was spectacular. We set up camp, ate a tasty campfire dinner, and drifted into the night talking and watching the fire flames flicker alongside the water. Perfect night and perfect stopping point. Who knew Arkansas would be so great. What a pleasant surprise.
