Mountain View, Arkansas, or "Mountain Do"™ as we like to say, is a tourist town with both a State Park and a National Park.  Here, you enjoy choice forms of entertainment.  It’s no wonder, Mountain View, Arkansas has been recognized as one of the country’s top Adventure Towns by both National Geographic Adventure Magazine and USA Today Travel.  It’s a small town with a rich spectrum of interests and culture, full of adventure while also bringing you back in time.

Take in a movie at one of the few operating drive-in theaters.   Step back in time amongst artisans making soap, candles, pottery, knives, and more, and take home new memories, skills, and souvenirs of the preserved Ozark heritage.  The “Folk Music Capital of the World,” Mountain View hosts the Arkansas State Fiddle Championship, offers Bluegrass Festivals, and concerts. Bring your instrument and join fellow musicians around town, including the Pickin' Park and the Courthouse Square.

Gear up for adventure!  Join us at Loco Ropes for an adventure you’ll long remember, talk about, and want to experience all over again!  Bring your mountain bike to ride the Syllamo IMBA Epic mountain bike trail. Reserve a handicap accessible or a wild cave tour at Blanchard Springs Caverns, "one of the most extraordinary finds of the century" per Life Magazine.  Enjoy a short or long (even overnight) horseback ride. Ride Push Mountain - a favorite among motorcyclists.  Register for a 3 day trail running stage race and Syllamo’s Revenge.  Take in some of the nation's best fishing.  Hike among Ozark favorite trails, offering variety and views, including limestone bluffs, natural springs, streams, and hardwood forests.  

It’s time to Mountain View it!™
