Arkansas Rides

Does anyone have any recommendations for a location in Arkansas to set up base for a few days of good riding? Thanks.

When I ride Arkansas, I stay in Jasper, its in the north part of the state, very small town but has everything you need, besides beer. if u drink bring your . own. Ozark Cafe in Jasper cooks a great breakfast. A lot of guys stay at the Hub outside jasper. Its for bikers get a lot of Harley riders in and out of there. Its ok, cheap like 50 a night. Lots of great roads, I ride Hwy 7 north thru the state when u get up north check out 123. And the pig trail Have Fun.

Check out the Hub. We stayed there and it was great and it is centrally located for all of the great ride roads.

Guesthouse RV Park FTW. Extremely nice people, we stayed there 2 years in a row. The first year we took an RV the second we stayed in their cabins. It's in Mountain View. Very close to Push Mountain Rd and within riding distance of Jasper and many other great roads/towns. Very bike friendly. 870-269-three seven five eight

Try to eat at the Cliffhouse restaurant.

+1. Definately a great place to stay and it's close to a lot of good riding.

Are you riding or trailering your bikes? I rode to Arkansas last October. Amazing roads. I rode to Hot Springs and stayed at the Best Western and then road up AR7 to Jasper and back to Hot Springs. When you take AR-7 north from Hot Springs there is an outstanding stretch of road from Jessieville to Ola. Here is a google map of my route. I took AR7 up to Jasper and also took AR123 from Lurton north. Amazing switchbacks. Link to map

Vid from a stretch of AR7 southbound heading back to Hot Springs. Camera doesn't do it justice (I forgot my camera mount at home so I had to fab something up and its a bit shaky):

If you have time, you HAVE TO do AR23 "the pig trail" up to Eureka Springs.

Map Link

Vid (a bit shaky so I tried to "cartoon" it


My trusty steed on that trip:

That's where my dad and I stayed real nice place and the owners are great. Plus they have coolers of beer that they accept "donations" for. I can't remember the name of the road, but my favorite went from Mountain View to Mountain home it's nothing but switch backs for miles.
