Natural Dam Falls in northern Crawford County (Ozark Forest) is a cool waterfall that is easy to get to and view.

You can drive right up to the natural wall of rock that spans the width of Mountain Fork Creek. It is in the community of Natural Dam, just west of Highway 59.

These are some videos I took when I visited the falls on November 17.

If you’re in the Haw Creek Falls area in the Ozark National Forest (northeast Johnson County), you may want to check out Pack Rat Falls. This 24-foot waterfall is just a short (but vigorous) hike from the campground.

Back on February 28, after we had a nice little snowfall in western Arkansas, I headed over to Haw Creek Falls (Ozark National Forest, northeast Johnson County) to get some winter pictures.

As you might expect, the waterfall was beautiful that morning with the freshly fallen snow and a number of icicles. The temps were in the mid-20’s.

Pam’s Grotto, in northeast Johnson County, is fantastic Ozark National Forest waterfall that is easily accessible with a short hike.

To get to the trailhead, first head to Haw Creek Falls Campground on state Highway 123. (See directions here.)

Turn right (north) out of the campground onto Highway 123  and go .5 miles. Turn right onto a small turnoff that heads down next to Haw Creek. There is a small campsite and parking area here.
