Augusta (pop. 2100) is the county seat, located on the banks of the White River, equidistant from Little Rock & West Memphis. This sleepy, sprawling river delta has lured curious visitors into longer sojourns since it was established by the Chickasaw Native Americans. Today, it is part of the Arkansas Heritage Trails System.

A haven for nature lovers, the area lays claim to internationally-known Cache River National Wildlife Refuge – a critical migratory hub and wetland zone spanning over 70,000 acres.

Small-town festivals like Augusta Days combine carnival fun with the region’s thriving local history. Every August, experience the waterways for a cause with “Floatin’ for a Cure.” Save time for golfing, fishing, and a tour of the historic downtown. Finally, put your taste buds to the test at the Tamale Factory, in the neighboring community of Gregory.

Finally, no visit is complete without a visit to celebrated Peebles Farm for a taste of farm-to-table, pick-your-own, old-fashioned goodness; a full farming experience that includes a fantastic corn maze!
