|Dardenelle State Park visitor center|
|Jake really enjoyed the fish tanks|
We also checked out the Arkansas River visitors center as it was just a mile or so from where we camped. There is not much to see or do there, but the kids had fun nonetheless. We thought that they would have more info about how the locks work. When we left, we drove down by the river and were pleased to see a barge coming up the river to enter the lock. We watched until they had closed the doors and then saw the barge rise higher and higher.

|Kids had fun in this tiny visitor center. It was just a mile down from where we were staying.|
|Since a barge was coming, we went down to the river and watched it go through the lock.|
|We used this chance to discuss how a lock worked as well as why they had to be used.|
|These two enjoyed having a slow day!|
