6. I dare not
post this in the Oklahoma forum where I also saw your inquiry posted.....

I am a legal resident of Oklahoma. Northeast Oklahoma. I grew up in Arkansas, still have family there and visit different areas of the state several times each year. I am most familiar with the western half of Arkansas and the northern half of Arkansas. I'm also pretty familiar with the southern half of Missouri.

My extended family holds a reunion every year in Izard county. We get a common meeting area, there is a lake nearby, fishing on the White River and lots of (free!) music in Mountain View. It is close to the Ozark Folk Center, Blanchard Springs Caverns, and several parks offer camping, hiking, and biking opportunities. Age appropriate activities for very small children are a bit limited but there is plenty for everyone else to do. Costs for lodging, meals, etc. is very reasonable. We usually stay in some cabins that come with a view, a porch with rocking chairs, cable, full size fridge, grill, microwave, stovetop and oven. Dogs are welcome and cabin cost runs about $50 per night. PM me if you want more specific information.

Another area I would suggest is the Fairfield Bay/Greers Ferry area. Fairfield Bay hosts a golf course that incorporates the splendor of the Ozarks in its design. It is a natural wonder. As I recall Fairfield Bay is about 30 miles or so across the mountain and south of Mountain View.

I'd also say that all of the suggestions in post #3 are worthy of consideration.

Sadly, you need to check what kinds of storm damage many of these places suffered. I'm told that one of the recent tornadoes that struck the area was an F4 and it was on the ground for over 120 miles.
