Other Names

Sandtown Farms Ranch

Last Known StatusOpen

Located in the scenic Ozark mountain area in northeastern Arkansas, this 1,800 acre private ranch is open year-round and offers some trails that cater to all skill riding levels along with direct access to county and state land which provide many more miles of trails to explore.

Trail highlights include a large cave with an underground river and waterfall (11 miles from camp), scenic rock overlooks and numerous creek crossings. There are also abandoned mines and natural springs to be seen in the general area. Permission must be obtained in advance by contacting the property owners and first time riders need to contact a trail guide. Primitive camping is available and there is plenty of room for RVs.
