Apr 23, 2011 - Alma, Arkansas

We drove about 250 miles east yesterday into Alma, in NW Arkansas. This large campground is set in the woods, but we haven't had any skeeter problems. Where Oklahoma City was in a severe drought, this area has had plenty of rain. Everything is lush green and mossy. The campground has a small lake, and several families of mallard ducks are living here (we found a nest this morning by the office). There are also cardinals, and several other species of birds that I'm not familiar with. We only planned on staying here two nights (Friday &...

Mar 31, 2011 - Spinach Capital of the World

We could not leave Arkansas without a visit to Alma--spinach capital of the world. And what do you think of when you think of spinach--Popeye, of course. Alma is the home of the spinach division of Allen Canning Co. A small city park on Main Street has the statue of Popeye and the town water tank claims to be the world’s largest can of spinach. To me, it looks more like a water tank painted green, but whatever. It was pouring down rain when we tried to see these attractions, so the photos aren’t very good, but you get the idea. We started...

Sep 23, 2009 - Alma Arkansas

9-23-2009 We left Harrison Arkansas today and went to a KOA in Alma Arkansas. We plan to drive in the car south to Ouachita National Forest. 9-24-2009 We drove to Ouachita National Forest and at Mena Arkansas we took the Talimena scenic drive. This road offers breathtaking panoramas of the east-west ranges of the Ouachita Mountains. This curving drive winds 54 miles west along the east spine of Rich Mountain and Winding Stair Mountain. The drive of 54 miles took about 3 hours as we stopped at many vista views. At the top of Rich Mountain...

Jun 18, 2009 - Alma, Arkansas

We left West Memphis about 7:30 this morning. It took us about 6 hours of travel. We are staying in the Alma/Ft. Smith KOA. As soon as we hooked up at our site about a dozen ducks met us at our door begging for food. You know me, I opened my bread bag and fed them several slices of bread. Maggie loved watching the ducks (she would have liked to catch one of them). There is a big pond right outside our site....however, the ducks want leave our site for now because I fed them. There is a pool at this KOA and it is salt water. We plan on...

Aug 28, 2007 - Arkansas

After a slow morning, we spent some time enjoying the indoor pool and hot tub at the Rockwell RV Park. Although we slept fine, I would recommend driving on to a state park for future RV stays. This was basically a parking lot off the freeway. Although they offer lots of amenities they are all (IMO) below standard. We loaded up and were ready to leave the park at the 11 o'clock check out time when we got the call notifying us that the Chevy dealership had already received our part! We spent less than ½ hour in their waiting room while they...
