Check out the fabulous new playground that recently opened near the cabins on Lake Leatherwood. Just a few minutes west of town on Hwy 62, at the Lake Leatherwood bridge. Exit to the north and follow pavement to the cabins/lake.

I bring my kayak and paddle the lake for peace and quiet, and great place to hike trails, feed the geese or have a picnic. Super friendly staff also rents boats. Beautiful.

This is a nice lake with pretty but not spectacular scenery immediately west of Eureka Springs downtown. Located at end of Leatherwood Road about two miles off Highway 62. Worth an hour or two if visiting Eureka Springs.
