With its serene setting in picturesque North Central Arkansas, Clinton has much to offer visitors and residents who love a wealth of natural treasures.

From premier fishing and canoeing on the Little Red River, to the outdoor paradise of Greers Ferry Lake, to the joys of camping, hiking and biking in the foothills of the Ozarks, Clinton boasts a variety of activities and is quietly becoming a popular retirement destination.

It’s a haven for nature lovers and outdoors enthusiasts who also appreciate having good medical facilities, shopping opportunities and other amenities right at hand.

Ozark Health serves the community with a 25-bed critical access medical center, a 132-bed long-term care nursing home and an array of outreach programs.

Clinton also offers an excellent school system with a newly constructed K-6 facility. This is complemented with a gymnasium and auditorium complex, each seating 1,800+ comfortably.

Residents and visitors alike enjoy the National Championship Chuckwagon Races held each Labor Day weekend. Other annual events include the Archey Fork Festival, the Scare on the Square, and a chili cook-off. The South Fork Nature Center features nature trails and a spectacular view of Greers Ferry Lake.

With mild weather much of the year, the area has plenty of parks to include: a children’s park, a skate park, riverside walking trails and picnic pavilions.

Ample volunteer opportunities provide a way to make friends while helping others. One example is the unique cooperative effort that resulted in the Three Rivers Convergence fountain by noted sculptor and Arkansas resident Hank Kaminsky. Images and words symbolic of the town’s history and heritage are sculpted on the surface under the flowing water.

Organizations in town include the Clinton Advertising and Promotion Commission, Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce, Lions Club, Rotary Club, Friends of Special People and many church groups.
