Prairie Grove itself offers many attractions and services to its citizens. Located on the edge of town is the Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park which celebrates the Civil War era Battle of Prairie Grove. The Park has a headquarters building with historical displays and maps as well as period outlying buildings. The park area provides delightful walks, beautiful scenery 12 months of the year, and a reenactment of the battle every other year. On Labor Day, the park hosts tens of thousands of visitors the annual Clothesline Fair, one of the top arts and crafts venues in the South. Within 3 miles of the city limits there are 2 fishing lakes. Prairie Grove Lake, 3 miles to the south, is a small lake restricted to boats with no motors. It supplies much of the city's drinking water and some good crappie fishing. Three miles to the west is Bob Kidd Reservoir, home to a Bass Fishing Club and some very nice size bass. Prairie Grove also sits in the middle of good hunting country. There are several seasons each year such as bow, black powder and modern gun. About 20 miles to the south is Devil's Den State Park featuring a small lake, canoeing, fishing and some of the most beautiful walking trails you will find anywhere in the country. About 13 miles to the Northwest is Lake Wedington, yet another superb outdoor recreation area. Just to the east of town is the Golf Club at Valley View with new homes lining the fairways. To the northeast of Fayetteville is Beaver Lake, the largest lake of the area, offering yet more in the way of outdoor recreation. We have access to a superb health care system. Fayetteville is home to the Washington Regional Medical Center, housed in a large and brand new facility only a 20 minute drive from Prairie Grove. A further 5 minutes down the road is the Northwest Health System and Willow Creek Women's Hospital, located in Springdale, and Mercy Medical Center in Rogers. These facilities provide state-of-the-art health care. There is also a large VA medical facility in Fayetteville. Prairie Grove is only 10 miles southwest of Fayetteville, Arkansas, which provides a whole new set of entertainment choices. Fayetteville is home to the University of Arkansas, with all that a university town has to offer. Restaurants, movies, plays, concerts and collegiate level sports abound. Fayetteville is also home to the Walton Arts Center, which has several annual concert series. There are horse shows, fairs, craft shows, trade shows, historical societies and clubs of all sorts to keep you busy for weeks. At the same time, you are only a 15 minute drive from your quiet home in Prairie Grove. When it comes time to travel, that is not only possible but convenient.
