Just ten miles east of Rogers, Arkansas, on State Highway 12, is Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area. At 12,056 acres, it is the largest land-holding state park in Arkansas. Long ridges, steep hollows, wild life and wildflowers, unique geology and unique history – it’s all here, only minutes away from the cities of Northwest Arkansas. Often called simply “Hobbs”, the park recalls the spirit of early Arkansas settlers. It provides a glimpse of much of the beauty that lured them to the Ozarks and the natural resources that inspired them to stay.
It is from Hobbs' valuable and unique resources that the park's mission is derived, which is, "To provide enriching educational and recreational experiences in harmony with resource stewardship." Balancing the ever-increasing need for recreation while protecting the ecosystem and educating Hobbs' visitors about the park and its history is an exciting challenge.
The park borders part of Beaver Lake. See the current lake level.
