Clinton (pop. 2500) is the county seat, located squarely on the Highway 65 route to Branson, MO. The brand new five-lane highway draws visitors for more than just a passing visit; restaurants and boutiques vie for your attention, framed by a breathtaking vista that leads into the historic downtown and a spectacular Riverwalk & nature park on the newly-restored Upper Little Red River. Trek the area on foot for an up-close look at the colorful murals and impressive “Three Rivers Trailhead” monument.

Ready for time on the green? Clinton’s only golf course is a 9-hole, park-style gem just off the highway, beside the state-of-the-art new Library.

The small but energetic community is book-ended by entrances to Greers Ferry Lake, a mecca for fishing and watersports. Marinas are accessible from the south (Choctaw) and the east (Fairfield Bay). The Archey Creek of the Little Red River connects floating & kayaking across the county. Celebrated events such as the National Championship Chuckwagon Races bring thousands of visitors to the area each Labor Day, along with popular attractions including the Natural Bridge.
