"The Arkansas River Valley is also referred to as the Tri-Peaks region because it contains three popular mountaintop state parks. Reserve a cabin or a lodge room at any of these parks for a comfortable girl’s weekend in the woods. Of course there are plenty of campsites too if you’re into roughing it and campfire cooking."
