Bluff City is a small community in Arkansas that dates back to the 1800's. It is a simple town that operates with just the essentials: a post office, gas station, and small market. The town was once home to a boarding school that housed students from all around the state. The area was developed as a farming community due to its soil quality. The town has seen its population rise and fall throughout the decades.
The town is surrounded by many disbanded towns that once thrived along with Bluff City. The Reader Railroad once brought business to the town and even attracted movie directors into the area! Just south of the city is the site of what was once the John Gulley Plantation, a well-known cotton plantation from the Civil War Era. Today, the area is used as a nursery and seed orchard.
One thing to keep in mind if you are planning on living in Bluff City with your dog is the proximity to veterinary care. The nearest animal hospital is about an hour away, either to the north or to the south. This shouldn't be an issue as long as you plan ahead and make sure to keep up with your pup's regular visits.
Just fifteen minutes away from Bluff City is the Poison Springs Battleground State Park. This park is the historic site of a highly controversial 1864 Civil War battle that was part of the Red River Campaign. The other battles in this campaign stretched throughout the communities and towns in this area. Today, the park is home to a trail with outdoor exhibits that are easily accessible. There is a picnic area as well. The park is great for the whole family, as it is kid-friendly, pet-friendly and even wheelchair-accessible. Dogs must be on a leash, and cleaning up after your pet is a necessity.
Just five minutes away from the center of Bluff City is White Oak Lake State Park. This park is home to The 2,765-acre White Oak Lake, where you can rent boats or bring your own! There is a visitor information center before you get to the designated camping areas. If you and your pup love to hike through historic trails, you will find plenty of Civil War artifacts in this park. You and your dog can enjoy the views from the trails of the forest and the West Gulf Coastal Plain, local wildlife, and more! You can also bring a mountain bike if your dog enjoys running with you.
Camden is a diverse and welcoming little town about 30 minutes away from Bluff City. The intersection of Van Buren and South Adams marks the spot where dog walkers have plenty of options for their adventures. You will find the Camden Riverfront in this area with a paved boardwalk pawfect for those afternoon strolls. The Sandy Beach Park is right along the Ouachita River just a few minutes away and offers access to the water for fishing. Postmasters Grill is right in this area as well and is open Tuesday through Saturday. There are plenty of dog-friendly tables outside that are available when the weather is nice.
Bearden and East Camden are actually two separate towns that are often considered a part of larger Camden. East Camden is home to the East Camden City Park, where you can enjoy plenty of room to roam with your dog. The city was built by the United States Navy and is now home to a large industrial park that utilizes solar panels. Two Bayou Creek runs right through the city and is a great place to pull over for a pit stop if you are traveling through with your pup. The area to the north that is shared with Bearden is known for being a college student friendly place for Southern Arkansas University Tech.
The Jenkins Ferry Battleground State Park is another site of the Red River Campaign battles from 1864. It is about 90 minutes away from Bluff City. During this battle, the Union used unconventional battle tactics and was able to escape and retreat from an otherwise high-casualty attack. Before the Civil War, the land was owned by Thomas Jenkins, who was responsible for building the original ferry in 1815. Today, the park has plenty of exhibits and historical markers throughout the trails and pavilions. There is a swimming area along the Saline River, making this a great place to beat the heat.
