HOT SPRINGS, AR - Go outside and get out of the city limits and you might find out why outdoor recreation in Arkansas is a $10 billion/year industry.

Hot Springs ORV Park (Off-Road-Vehicle Park) and other off-roading parks around the state make the billion dollar national activity one-of-a-kind in the Natural State.

The US Forest Service says it's estimated that more than 25% of Arkansans older than 16 go on at least one off-road excursion per year. That's higher than the national average of 19% and likely continually rising.
