Ozark is a very small town in Arkansas. It has a very poor school system and no industry whatsoever to speak of. The nature and scenery is actually very nice, it is located on the banks of the Arkansas River with the Mulberry river only about a 20 minute drive outside of town. The Mulberry is perfect for kayaking or canoeing, as well as just camping with friends. It is a good place to retire, a bad place for anything else.

Even though it is a small town, I wouldn't want to live any other place. The people are friendly. Their is so many out door activities you could do here without having to travel a lot. You can camp, hunt, canoe, swim, fish, go muddying, rafting, tubing, etc. I love how this small town is full of hillbilly spirit. That's our school mascot. It's unique and people aren't afraid to show Hillbilly Pride!
Situated in the Ozark Mountains and directly near the Ouachita Mountains, Ozark is a beautiful town to visit. Despite its small population, there are several factories here, providing ample job opportunities for blue collar workers. My family and I have enjoyed our time in Ozark. There's a rich history here, along with plenty of local community activities for the whole family to enjoy. I would like to see improvement within the Ozark public school system, as well as improvement in the area animal services. Despite the few issues within the town, Ozark is a lovely place to live, work, and raise a family in.
