The greatest attraction of
Heber Springs, Arkansas is the 31,000 acre Greers Ferry Lake.
Almost 40 years ago, President John F. Kennedy stood on a
flag-draped platform overlooking the just-completed Greers Ferry
Dam and spoke of the prosperity the lake would bring to the
region. Today, the millions who visit annually recognize it as one
of the cleanest and most scenic places in the mid-South. This
crystal clear playground provides excellent opportunities for
fishing, boating, water sports, hiking, and site seeing off the
beaten path. With about 31,500 acres of the lake surface at
conservation pool, fishing on Greers Ferry Lake is superb
throughout the year.
Nestled in the foothills
of the scenic north central Arkansas Ozark Mountains, Heber
Springs is home popular festivals and events such as The World
Championship Cardboard Boat Races, held on Greers Ferry Lake, and
our Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration ... fun with the whole
family in mind.
