Arkadelphia is right in the heart of the action in Arkansas. With Little Rock to the east, and Crater of Diamonds State Park to the west, visitors to Arkadelphia can easily reach big city amenities or dig for diamonds in a volcanic crater in the park.
A jet charter airport in Arkadelphia gives travellers a view of Ouachita River that meanders through Arkansas and hugs the eastern border of the city. A popular canoeing, kayaking and fishing spot, the river is only one of the many water sources near by. Caddo River and DeGray Lake are other popular destinations for those wanting to cool down or try their hand at snagging a fish.
Arkadelphia offers a quiet, comfortable downtown. With a classic small-town pavilion, Feaster Park is often busy with people using the basketball courts or softball fields. Nearby Feaster Trail is an easily accessible trail that covers the length of the city.
Those looking for a more scenic stroll will enjoy a short, flat walk at DeSoto Bluff Trail. Ending with a spectacular view overlooking the Ouachita River, the trail also has sign posts that describe the history of Caddo Indians in the area.
Students flock to the area to attend either of the two universities located in Arkadelphia: Hender State and Ouachita Baptist.
Venture further north and see why Arkansas is known as “The Natural State.” The Ozarks, Buffalo and Arkansas rivers, and White Rock Mountain all await.
