A gorgeous place in the Boston Mountains

Last week several of us got a preview of what dignitaries from across Arkansas will see late next week as they dedicate Lake Fort Smith State Park.

Visitor Center — looking from the back porch and fireplace into the meeting room. The view behind my back is lovely, with Lake Fort Smith serving as the star of the show.

The group lodge is nothing like the austere conditions I “endured” at church camp.

Lake Fort Smith State Park — a collaborative project of Arkansas State Parks and the City of Fort Smith. I’m really proud of the new facilities and the drinking water supply.
