I love this place. As young kids in the late 1960's myself and other classmates from Dardanelle passed many a good time here. My feelings for this place run deep. Crystal clear cool water, overwhelming pine scent and something special. No sure quite what, but maybe granite or sandstone tinted smell to water. Whatever, I loved it. Says David Crowe
Not far from Spring Lake you acquire some delightful water scenery at Spring Lake Dam. If you came for an overnight
stay Spring Lake Campground is a good location to camp. While you're here at Spring Lake you can take a hike along the Magazine Hiking Trail; if by chance you have a boat, Spadra Waterfront Marina is a tremendous marina.
