As usual, this Arkansas Welcome Centers and Rest Area did not disappoint.

 

This well-maintained rest area has lots of designated Pet Areas.  In fact, most of the rest area is dog-friendly - as long you stayed leashed away from the restroom building.  We also noticed several workiing water pumps throughout the property.

 

We noticed other traveling dogs stretching their paws; one was even friendly enough to sniff and greet.

 

There are official dog areas on both the north and south sides. The north side is slightly larger, more open, and if you park as you enter the rest area, easier to access.

North Pet Area


The dog area on the north side is approximately 200 feet by 150 feet.  A drainage ditch runs through part of the dog walk so after heavy rains you may encounter some soggy spots.

South Pet Area


South of the visitor building and restrooms is another open green area designated specifically for pets.
