Exploring Arkansas March 2012
Kings River Eagles, Gangster Museum of America, Bluffton, Panther Bluff Falls
A float trip down the Kings River in north Arkansas is especially rewarding during the winter months since the chances of spotting bald eagles is quite good. In the only museum of its kind in the nation, the Gangster Museum of America portrays not the deeds of gangsters, but their impact and lifestyle when they came to Hot Springs on so called "neutral" ground. Bluffton was once a thriving community near Clinton in the mid 1800's. The old post office, general store still stands. Panther Bluff Falls and Camp Creek Falls are two waterfalls that can easily be enjoyed immediately off the road north of Dierks.
