We Welcome You to Arkansas County!

Arkansas County offers a wonderful mix of traditional southern life with farming at its very heart.  Our community is also nature and wildlife oriented and has a variety of pastimes and passions for those who live here and those who visit.  Duck, deer, goose, dove, turkey, raccoon, squirrel and rabbit hunting are favorites.  In addition to that, Arkansas County has the Mississippi, Arkansas, and White Rivers contained within and on it's borders.

Arkansas County offers many varied activities for

the sportsman and sightseer throughout the year.

Arkansas Post National Park and Museum

and is just a few miles past Gillett, roughly a 15 minute drive. The Arkansas Post Museum features exhibits and buildings from the time of the first settlements on the Arkansas River. The Arkansas Post National Park has a fabulous museum and visitors can walk the grounds to see where the first settlers west of the Mississippi had a thriving port and trade with the Quapaw Indians of the region.

Gillett is host to the annual Gillett Coon Supper,

which has been one of the most acknowledged, anticipated, and attended wild game dinners anywhere around.  The Annual Coon Supper is a veritable "rite of passage" for politicians and it's proceeds benefit local scholarships for graduating seniors.  It is sponsored by the Gillett Farmers and Businessmen's Club and has been held the second week of January every year for over 78 years.

​The Dale Bumpers White River National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center

is located only 15 miles away in St. Charles, Arkansas. Downtown St. Charles has an American Civil War marker and monument to the "Battle of St. Charles."

Merrisach Lake Camp Grounds and Notrebes Bend Wilbur D. Mills Camping Grounds are beautiful and worth a drive down to the Lock and Dam #2.  Merrisach Camping Grounds houses the Wilbur D. Mills Pool and a Day Park perfect for picnics.

Museum of Arkansas Grand Prairie is located in Stuttgart, 30 miles from our hotel and displays a miniature Lutheran church and schoolhouse, and inside the museum is a waterfowl exhibit and an antique farm equipment exhibit.

The "Wings Over the Prairie" Duck Calling Contest and Festival

is held in Stuttgart each year during the third week of November. 

The DU Banquet and "Duck Gumbo"

are always a huge hit and draw crowds from all over the country.​

We are situated in a delta area where the Mississippi, White, and Arkansas Rivers merge so hunting opportunities, wildlife, and nature abound.

In Downtown DeWitt, the heart of our town is a picturesque town square that houses restaurants, several boutiques, hair stylists, a florist, shops, a coffee shop, and a flea market.  DeWitt has many lovely businesses off the square as well such as a tea shop, another excellent flea market, hair stylists, and businesses that have wonderful trinkets,

clothing, and decor items. For many years, the citizens of DeWitt have worked to revitalize our downtown and showcase all that DeWitt has to offer both historically and currently!

Thanks to Mrs. Katie Sollars (KBS Photography) for many of the wonderful farm photos on our site.
