Arkansas Water & Woods Arkansas is a place that beckons you outside. Adventures are as wildly diverse and beautifully varied as the terrain you’ll discover here – rolling hills, lush timberlands, sparkling lakes and pristine rivers. It’s in these scenic woodlands and on these world-class waters that you can breathe, relax, roam, explore and play. Arkansas Water and Woods offers an inside look at outdoor activities in The Natural State.
The nickname for Arkansas is The Natural State. Arkansas is famous for its natural scenic beauty, clear lakes and streams, and abundant wildlife. Arkansas has 52 state parks, three national forests, five national parks, and the nation's first national River (the Buffalo National River, which meanders through the heart of the Ozarks, is America's first federally protected stream). Magnolia Falls is pictured above.
