Nestled in Mountain View, Arkansas, a town dubbed the “Folk Music Capital of the World” by traditional folk music enthusiasts. The Ozark Folk Center State Park is an American cultural treasure – as the only park dedicated to the interpretation and presentation of Arkansas living history through the perpetuation of Ozark region heritage.
The combination of a variety of meeting venues, plus the entertainment on site, makes this park a popular place for groups. The Music Auditorium can seat up to 1,000 persons. The Small Conference Center in the park's Administration Building features 167 seats, and nearby are two individual conference rooms. There is also a roomy Recreation Room near the park's overnight accommodations, The Cabins at Dry Creek, and, the Committee of 100 Meeting Room is in the park's Skillet Restaurant.
The Cabins at Dry Creek Lodge are a unique collection of 30 duplex lodges (totaling 60 guest rooms) aligned along the edge of the surrounding Oak-Hickory forest. The Skillet Restaurant, where tasty Southern country cooking is the bill of fare, is just a short walk, or drive, away. So are the park's Music Auditorium and Crafts Village, where artisans demonstrate pioneer skills and homestead crafts.
The Ozark Folk Center State Park is in north-central Arkansas one mile north of Mountain View at 1032 Park Avenue off Highways 5, 9 and 14. To make arrangements for group meetings or conferences at one of Arkansas’s unique state parks with lodges
