    For anyone going on this Arkansas trip; we are changing hotels for the first leg of the Arkansas trip. We are cancelling our rooms at the Mammoth Springs Lodge Motel and making reservations at the Biggers Bed and Breakfast in Hardy Arkansas which is 12 miles south of Mammoth Springs. The last few reviews of the Mammoth Springs Lodge are really bad and we do not want to stay there. Make reservations at Biggers B&B.
