adventure In the Ozarks

Rocky Branch Resort is the perfect home-base for some of the very best fishing, hiking and mountain biking in Arkansas.  We are located next to Rocky Branch Marina and Recreation area and are minutes from Hobbs State Park and War Eagle Mill. 

Hobbs State Park

Hobbs is Arkansas’s largest state park, spanning a 12,054-acre tract of Ozark landscape along the southern shore of Beaver Lake. The park includes a 52-mile trail system with hiking, ADA, mountain biking, and horseback riding trails, and 5 primitive campsites. The visitor center includes exhibits about the park’s natural resources, limestone landscape, and history. 

Bass Fish


Beaver Lake is known for its large and small-mouth bass, crappie, bream, white bass, stripers, and channel or spoon-bill catfish. Nearby War Eagle Creek is the perfect place to catch all sorts of fish and spend some quality time on the banks of the river. We are happy to connect you to a local fishing guide for your trip.

Mountain Biking

Mountain biking

Deer, wild turkey, and small game hunting is permitted in nearby Hobbs Park during certain times of the year. See state Game & Fish regulations. Special Hobbs permit may be required for some hunts.



We are just off Hwy 12, a winding adventure in the Ozarks every rider should check off his or her bucket-list that goes from Rogers towards Eureka Springs.  And of course, the Bikes, Blues & BBQ rally happens every year in NW Ark. Plan your ride on Ozark Rides.
