Heber Springs

Heber Springs was founded as a health resort, and was first called Sugar Loaf in the mid-19th century. Later the name changed to Heber Springs, and In March of 1959, work on the large federal dam on the Little Red River began. After completion, the lake was dedicated on October 3, 1963 by President John F. Kennedy. After the lake filled, tourism boomed, many businesses opened and reopened, and the Heber Springs area became one of Arkansas’ leading destinations. 

Today Heber Springs serves as a gateway to Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River. Visitors and residents from the area can explore the historic county courthouse with its traditional square surrounded by gift galleries, boutiques, antique stores, and eateries. Spring Park, with its seven natural mineral springs that attracted the original settlers to the area, still serves faithful patrons who ardently attest the medicinal properties of the water. This perfect balance of weather, scenery and outdoor recreation continues to attract thousands of visitors and newcomers every year.
