“Great place for fried catfish and other country food. Bring your appetite, the portions are big! Right down the road from Mammoth Spring State Park so it would probably be a good idea to pair up the two in one drive.”

Antique Shop
“Main Street is the main road through the historic 'downtown' section of Hardy. This place has changed little since the turn of the century railroad expansion days when Hardy was founded. It offers stores with great selection in antiques, local art, and is also home to 4 of the local restaurants. The 4 restaurants are: Leaves and Beans Cafe, Corner Booth, Crosseyed Catfish, and Spring River Eatery.”

Natural Feature
“Rated as one of Arkansas’ best float streams, the scenic Spring River is fed by the icy waters of the Mammoth Spring, just a few miles north of Hardy. The river’s white water shoals and rushing falls challenge the canoeist’s skills while the constant water flow from the spring makes it a good canoeing, kayaking, and rafting stream year-round. The South fork of the river is a mild, beautiful warm water stream with excellent scenery ideal for a leisurely float trip. The Spring River’s cold waters make it one of the top spots for rainbow trout in Arkansas. Fly-fishing is a popular sport year-round as anglers go after trophy fish. In the warmer stretches of the river, champion Bass, Walleye, and the occasional Tiger Muskie reward the wily fishermen. Everything you need for an exciting river adventure is available from local suppliers, including canoe and kayak rentals, guided fishing and hunting trips, rods, reels, fly fishing tackle and accessories, clothing and Arkansas fishing licenses. ”
