About Mammoth Spring

Located in extreme northern Arkansas, Mammoth Spring is the largest spring in the state, and the second largest spring in the Ozarks. This National Natural Landmark spring flows nine million gallons of water per hour. The spring forms a scenic 10-acre lake, then flows south out of the park as the Spring River. The Spring River is a popular Ozarks trout and floating stream.

Located near the spring, an 1886 Frisco train depot will take you back in time as you explore the train station. There is also a Frisco caboose located just outside the depot.

The remains of an old mill, along with the historic hydroelectric plant building, reflects Mammoth Spring's history and heritage.

The park features an information center that is also an Arkansas Welcome Center. Exhibits inside detail the Mammoth Spring area's cultural history and natural resources. Also located nearby are a ballfield, playground, a trail, and picnic sites.
