Spring break kicks off in the natural state

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Spring Break has arrived here in Arkansas, and the state parks are ready for it.

At Pinnacle State Park, more than 2,000 acres await eager Spring breakers. THV's Macy Jenkins caught up with Park Interpreter Richard Spilman.

"Yeah we have a lot of different types of water recreational activities, and now that the ice has melted, visitors can rent paddle boats and canoes," said Spilman.

The tell tale sign that winter is gone: a packed Spring Break schedule.

"We've got everything from canoe floats to lake tours to hay rides."

But it doesn't stop at just Pinnacle.

"No matter what state park you go to, you're bound to get some type of different experience."

Here at the visitor's center you can find maps for all 52 of the state parks and a guide for all of the activities you can do.

Spilman said the state parks plan almost a year ahead of time, packing cruises and night hikes in whenever time allows.

And even though there's no camping at Pinnacle, there's always a spot to cook up some good s'mores.

"You don't have to go out of state to have fun. There are so many things to do here, so much nature, so much history," said Spilman.
