Fairly new cabin (part of Cow Oaks Cabins and Event Center, is set among trees and grass with rock circular drive ways and across the street from The Little Red River, a blue ribbon trout river. The river may be seen from the front porch of this cabin. (Also see VRBO Listing #902544)
A semi-private dock is available for use. This dock is covered and features ample seating, ceiling fans, rod holders, a fish cleaning station and a live fish box/basket. Features from the dock (besides great fishing) are wonderful views of sunsets and sunrises along with sighting of local wildlife, including river otters and other animals wondering along the banks of the river. Eagles often fly up and down the river searching fo their next meal. The covered and shaded dock provides a peaceful setting where fog often rolls up and down the river during the morning and evening hovering over the cold water of the The Little Red River.
(Note: Only approved guests staying on site may use the dock. Any visitor(s) to the cabins must have owner's approval to use the dock.)
Boats may be rented from Lobo Landing Camp (1-1/2 miles up river). A public boat launch is also located at that facility. Should you bring your boat you have ample parking at the cabin with a circular driveway.
Libby Shoals, a walk-in fly fishing state facility is 2-1/2 miles up river. Less than a mile down stream is Little Dunham Shoals, a barbless restricted fishing area on the river.
Fish or just relax on the dock. It is a great place to get away and it is approximately 400' from the cabin (across the street and down a couple sets of stairs with walkways).
The cabin is just 10 miles from the Damsite Recreation area on Greer's Ferry Lake. Greer's Ferry Lake is an outdoor enthusiats' dream, with boating, sailing, water skiing, swimming, scuba diving and fishing opportunities.
The Gardner Visitor Center is just west of the dam, with exhibits, a children's touch table, and a replica of the world record 40 lb. 4 oz. brown trout caught in the Little Red River. A disc golf course is also located off a paved road from the Visitor center. Bring your disc or borrow some from the property management on site. (Discs also available from the visitor center.)
The area is a hikers' delight, with many trails within 10 miles of the cabin. Try out Sugarloaf Mountain Trail, Mossy Bluff Buckeye Trail (from the Gardner Visitor Center) and Bridal Falls Trail (Sugarloaf, Mossy Bluff and listed as moderate and Bridal Falls as easy).
Bring your canoe or kayak or rent one. Great float trips are available on the Little Red River. (These may be launched at Lobo Landing or any other site on the river.)
Discover downtown Heber Springs and its unique shops! Or dine out at a few great restaurants: Southern Girls BBQ in Pangburn, or along the Little Red RIver banks off of Hwy 110 for Cafe Klaser (private club) or Chuck's Dinner.
