De Gray Lake area

Jump to last reply

My spouse and I are taking a camping/motorcycling trip the end of October (spur of the moment trip--next week). Looking for Ideas for day trips in that area. Have read lots of feeds from previous forums. Since we are on the motorcycle we tend to stay away from the big cities if we can because they haven't outlaw texting or hand held cell phone usage. Too many close calls.
Going to drive from Central Iowa to the De Gray Lake area. But may pass through Eureka Springs to catch the Crystal Bridges Museum on the return trip before getting home. Not for sure.
We travel a lot! We love being off the beaten path and want to eat where the locals love to eat. We are spending about 5 days give or take depending on the weather. See many byways on the map but looking for good ones. Read about the Talimena Drive. How long would that really take to do a loop incorporating that from the Arkadelphia area?? And read about the Rte 7 to Petit Jean SP and Mt Nebo and 309. We are trying to stay south and west of the Arkansas River. Thinking of planting our stakes at the De Cray Lake SP???? Don't need to know about cutesy shops, no take home space or time. Want to stay away from the "eureka springs feel". Anything cool around Camden, Monticello, El Dorado, Magnolia, De Queen, Fordyce?
