Wildlife such as deer, bald eagles, and otter call this area home. Activities like hiking, bird watching, and campling draw people to this pristine part of the Ozark Mountains.

A stop by one of the largest fish hatcheries still producing will nicely round out a visit to Mountain Home. Operated by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the hatchery was started in 1955. Three types of trout are raised here to be used for restocking waters below several dams. Reservoirs and even waters in nearby states are beneficiaries too.
