The second-largest city in Arkansas, Fort Smith enjoys a rich history that includes historic Civil War battles and much more. It also features some lush outdoor beauty that offers plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities. Lake Fort Smith State Park provides great fishing, picnic sites, campgrounds, swimming pools and a marina with boat rentals. Or, head to the famous Ozark National Forest, with its caves, natural springs and crystal-clear streams. Renowned as a premier natural destination, this area offers an explosion of vibrant color during the autumn months, when the dense deciduous forest starts to shed leaves.
