This guidebookåÊisåÊthe first written by Harrison resident and Ozark native Glenn Wheeler. Glenn grew up on the Buffalo River and spent many years exploring dozens of gorgeous swimming holes there, and knows the area quite well. And now he has spent much of the past two years searching out the very best old-time swimming holes in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri - the ones that are out of the way and uncrowded, and just perfect for a cool dip on a hot summer day. He details 85 of the best holes in this book, and includes a photo, map, GPS, and complete driving/hiking directions for each location, plus local information, saftey tips, and more. All of the swimming holes are located on public property or private areas with public access, and are easy to get to - most of them you can drive right to. They are located on scenic creeks, streams, rivers, and small lakes.
