Rocky Branch in Rogers in Eureka Springs has quickly become one of my favorite lakes and recreation areas. It’s just simply a gorgeous area for great outdoor recreation such as camping, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and biking trails, soccer and baseball fields, etc.
It’s other draw is that it is a very quiet park. Fun fact: It is the 2nd largest city park in the country (the first is New York’s Central Park). One employee told me that the park’s vast 1600 acres are very underutilized, which is unfortunate, but secretly I am a bit glad for it. It’s like a hidden gem. Each time we’ve visited, it’s almost felt like we had the whole park to ourselves which has been really nice, but I really do wish more people would venture here and make great use of this amazing area.
