AS WITH SO MANY EVENTS, HOOT FEST WAS CANCELED IN 2020.
We hope to revive this signature event once we can be assured that it is safe to do so.
Discover the hidden delights of the Little Buffalo at Hoot Fest! Outdoor fun for all, with swimming, hiking, great food, games, music, prizes and more, all to support the work of Arkansas Ozark Waterkeeper.
Hoot Fest was suspended due to Covid-19

No need to head home or leave early to go lock down a campsite in the park. Primitive campsites available onsite! Registering ensures you have a site. Tent pitching is on a first-come basis, but don't worry - there are unlimited breathtaking places to camp.
Are you musically inclined or just like to pretend you are when the mood is just right?
Perfect. Bring your pickin' instruments, harmonica, tambourine, whatever you've got, and stick around for the late night jam session!
