Some of my acquaintances have yet to enjoy the experience of swimming in a real, live creek and several have voiced their objections, citing fear of fish, turtles or snakes. My favorite swimming holes are in the creeks and rivers of the Ozarks and Ouachitas, although most of the big lakes have nice swimming areas, too.
But the swimming holes along streams just seem more intimate, more natural and more traditional. In the Ozarks, the Buffalo River could be described as a series of swimming holes connected by riffles and rapids.
A time-honored swimming hole is at the low-water bridge near Ponca. Several miles downstream is a great hole at Jim Bluff.
There are fine swimming spots at the Highway 7 bridge, immediately downstream from the US 65 bridge, at Shine-Eye, and at the Buffalo Point campground. Should you have such a hankering to flout the law and enjoy the pleasure of water and air against your bare skin, please be discreet.
Quiet coves, especially on summer weekdays, of the larger lakes have been known to attract those wishing to swim sans suits. Authorities might tell you otherwise, but skinny-dipping has many devotees.
Thomas Hart Benton, the noted artist and frequent Buffalo River visitor, regularly included skinny-dipping among his favorite Arkansas activities. Each month, AY will share one of the distinctive essays. We hope these stories will give you a new appreciation for this geographically compact but delightfully complex place we call home. The essays have been collected and published by Butler Center Books in a two-volume set, both of which are now available to purchase at Amazon and the University of Arkansas Press.
