The capitol of Arkansas is Little
Rock. The state is split between the Ozark
Mountains, and in the south forest covers much of the territory.
Near the Louisiana border, parkland like the Presidential
National Wildlife Refuge on Interstate-82 - near Crossett
- are areas of outstanding natural beauty.

The state line runs along much of the Mississippi
River to the east. In the south is Louisiana

To the north the metropolitan areas of Fayetteville,
Smith are heavily populated, and economically very vibrant.

One of Arkansas well-loved sports is fishing. The Norfork
water and White
River areas benefited greatly from the creation of the Norfork
Dam. These are just some of the destinations for trout fishers looking
for river or lake sport.
