What to know

In the Ozark Mountains on 459 acres and home to a variety of exotic and native animals, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge (TCWR) is one of the nation's most respected and unique big cat sanctuaries. As an ethical animal tourism destination accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, this nonprofit is a “top ten” family-friendly Northwest Arkansas attraction and one of the most popular in Eureka Springs.

The organization's unwavering commitment to compassionate animal care has been featured in Arkansas Living, About You magazine and other publications, and the nonprofit has generated positive national attention, most recently via the Travel Channel series Hotel Impossible.

Enjoy educational daily tours or experience Africa in the Ozarks in one of TCWR's comfortable lodging accommodations. And don’t miss their popular annual events like the unique “Art with an Altitude” Kite Festival in March and fun Howl-O-Ween Spooktacular in October.
