Distance from Dallas: 325 miles, 6-hour drive
This is one of the farther ones on the list, but totally worth the extra distance covered to get there. They offer events, trails, cabins, and campgrounds (so you’re able to pick how you’d like to sleep). With all of the caves and crevices hidden throughout the park, you can get in the mind of the bands of Confederate guerrillas that would hide out before raids during the American Civil War. WELCOME TO ARKANSAS!
