136,000 Acres of True Ozark Wilderness
Unlimited Sportsman's Cabin is right on the edge of 136,000 acres of public land. You'll be hard pressed to find recreational lodging with better access to Ozark Outdoor Adventure! Lodge yourself and stable your horse at our cabin. Ride or hike on miles of trails which start right at the cabin. Fish for smallmouth and four species of trout in the world class White River two miles away. The Ozark Highlands hiking trail is 8 miles away. Or drive 15 minutes to Norfork Lake for watersports and more fishing. Golf, dining, shopping, and several area attractions are within a 35 minute drive. If its Ozarks adventure you seek, you can do it from here with easy, fast access. That's why we call it Unlimited Sportsman's Cabin.

Great For Honeymoons To Hunting
A broad range of people enjoy Unlimited Sportsman's Cabin. Everyone from honeymooners to hunters enjoy its forest setting. Honeymooners walk along our quiet country road enjoying wildflowers, birding, and wildlife watching, and listening to the large creek with its ledge rock riffles. Hunters enjoy going deep into the forest on foot or horseback. Fishermen enjoy having great trout and smallmouth bass fishing so close by. Children enjoy playing with a long list of fascinating objects from rocks to the little lizards laying in the sun, and hunting for salamanders in the creek. Executives enjoy the quiet and privacy so far removed from the office phone. During spring and summer you'll hear song birds by day, and whippoorwills and owls at night.

Stables & Riding
While we do not offer horseback riding, you are welcome to bring your own horses and mules. (Current Coggins required.) Our corral has water, four outside stalls and two stalls in the covered shed, and a tack room. There is room to park your livestock trailer two hundred feet from the corral.

Spring House
The Spring House is made for dressing and preparing your game and fish. The double stainless sinks with running water makes it really easy to clean your limit of trout.

River and Lake Fishing
There are no closed fishing seasons in Arkansas, so you can fish any day of the year. The cabin is two miles from the uncrowded Cartney Public Access to the White River. Rainbow, brown, cutthroat, and some brook trout are the sportfish found in the White River. Several world line class record trout have been caught in these waters. Trophy trout of four pounds or more are caught on a regular basis, and a day's catch of 20 to 60 rainbow trout 12 to 18 inches long are common. The world's second largest brown trout ever caught on tackle was taken a few miles away in the North Fork river where there is also abundant brook trout.You can bank fish, or fish from a boat.

Because the White and North Fork rivers are tailwater fisheries, you can also wade fish, but only during periods of low water. If smallmouth bass are your preferred sportfish, the Buffalo National River holds strong populations of large smallmouth, and you can also fish for smallmouth in this section of the White River. The Buffalo is 15 minutes away by boat from the White. Jon Boat rentals are available right at the cabin, or bring your own. Call us for details. We have room to park your trailer.

Norfork Lake, which is 15 miles away, offers year around fishing for striped bass, crappie, largemouth, smallmouth, catfish, panfish, white bass, and walleye. You can rent boats at lake marinas like or bring your own. If you prefer to fish with a local professional guide, we can arrange guided trips for you on lake or river.

Two nice brown trout from the White River

Black bear, whitetail deer, wild turkey, and squirrel are the primary game here. Arkansas has modern rifle, archery, and muzzleloading seasons. Whether on horseback, driving, on foot, or on ATV, you'll find many places to hunt in the surrounding 136,000 acres of U.S. Forest Service land in the Sylamore District of the Ozark National Forest. Hunt from horseback straight from the cabin. We are in the Sylamore (sill-a-more) Wildlife Management area, zone 620.

Eco Attractions
Whether you want a simple drive-up spot to watch wildlife, or really want true Wilderness, its here. Wildflower walks, birding, and day hikes are all close by. Of the 136,000 acres of public lands near our cabin, 16,956 are in the Leatherwood Wilderness Area, and another 22,044 are in the Lower Buffalo Wilderness for a total of 39,000 acres of U.S. Government owned contiguous Wilderness area. Only horseback and foot access are allowed in the Wilderness areas. Old logging roads and unmarked trails wind all through these lands. Some of the most impressive Karst geology of the Ozarks can be found in the Cliffty Canyon Special Interest Botanical Area, which also is inhabited by some 120 species of wildflowers. Cliffty Canyon is in Forest Service lands so you can drive to it in a four wheel drive vehicle. Clear Ozark spring fed creeks can be found in the bottoms of several other canyons.

The Ozark Highlands hiking trail winds for 23 miles through our area with three trail heads on the highway a few miles away. The Sylamo Mountain Bike Trails, some 30 miles of stacked loop treks through the Ozark terrain far from buildings, are about 30 minutes away.

Civil Attractions
When you want to come in out of the hills and go to town, its a scenic 35 minute drive to Mountain View, Arkansas. This small town has been a delight to tourists for many years. Mountain View is known for its live Blue Grass music, top quality art, antique, and craft shopping, and some good restaurants. The Ozark Folk Center, also nearby, has 20-plus live demonstrations of Ozark pioneer skills, plus a gift shop, restaurant, and a live music show theater. Blanchard Springs Caverns is an underground wonder, but also has swimming and fishing. If watersports are what you want, Norfork Lake is 15 miles away. Water skiing, tubing, scuba, and just plain cruising the lake are all possible if you rent a boat from a local marina, or bring your own. Mountain Home, Arkansas is about 25 minutes away and also offers shopping, dining, golf, and attractions.

Whether coming from the north or south you'll need to travel on Highway 341 (aka Push Mountain Road). We will give you directions to Cross Roads Store, which is at the intersection of Highway 341 and CR 72 in Baxter County, Arkansas. ("CR" stands for County Road in Baxter County.) Look for our sign at the intersection of 341 and CR 72. At the store turn onto CR 72, a gravel road, and go 6 tenths of a mile to an intersection. Go straight, don't turn left. You will now be on CR 114. Go 3/4 mile and you will see Unlimited Sportsman's Cabin on your left.
