Message From the Staff

Thanks for making Byrd's Adventure Center the leading ATV park in Arkansas and one of the top canoe, kayak, and raft rental services on the wild and scenic Mulberry River. Since 1982, Byrd's Adventure Center has been the original off road and ATV park in Arkansas. In addition to hundreds of miles of ORV and ATV trails in the surrounding Ozark National Forest, Byrd's Adventure Center offers 800-acres of the ultimate trails, mud pits, and obstacles for your ATV, UTV (side by side), motorcycle, and stock or modified 4x4. With concerts beginning in the 1980s, Byrd's was the original music venue in the Mulberry River Valley. In 1995 Byrd's staff obtained the first permit to teach rock climbing in the Ozark National Forest. Byrd's Adventure Center was the first RV Campground and one of the first to offer lodging and cabin rentals along the wild and scenic Mulberry River. Arkansas' first adventure race, the Ozark Challenge, originated at Byrd's in 1998. The first hang gliding aerotow clinic in Arkansas took place at Byrd's in 2004. In 2010 Byrd's Adventure Center was base camp for the first Outward Bound courses in Arkansas.

Thanks to everyone who helped us grow at Byrd's Adventure Center! We look forward to serving you.  –the Byrd's staff
