My two sons and I try to make it up to the Ouachita National Forest each year from Central Texas. We usually stay in the Mt Ida, Arkansas area, but with 1.8 million acres, stretching from Oklahoma into Arkansas, the choices are all up to you. There are many fantastic camp sights around that area and 100's of logging roads and trails as well as fantastic sweeping paved roads cutting through the hills and valleys. It's a great area for "dual sporting". The scenery is spectacular and the local hospitality is great toward folks on motorcycles. We feel it a hidden and often over looked gem of motorcycle friendly country with good food and motorcycle friendly lodging for those looking to sleep in a room vs camping.
