The Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism—State Parks Division, has thoughtfully and strategically planned for the Park's improvements and utilization consistent with the Park's mission, "To provide enriching educational, and recreational experiences in harmony with resource stewardship." With the assistance of the Friends of Hobbs and others, the objective of making Hobbs a place of education and conservation is becoming a reality.
