Hobbs is Arkansas’s largest state park, spanning a 12,054-acre tract of Ozark landscape along the southern shore of Beaver Lake. It’s an asset to the ecosystem and water with minimum human impact. Highlights of this day-use park include a diverse, 36-mile trail system with hiking, ADA, mountain biking, and horseback riding trails, 5 primitive campsites, and a public outdoor shooting range. The Conservation Area provides “Dark sky within a short driving distance from most points in Northwest Arkansas.”
