Grab the ice chest, beach towels, all the swimming gear or fishing tackle, and let’s go to the lake. Arkansas is a mecca for swimming and fishing, thanks to the various lake systems located throughout the Natural State. Going to the lake in Arkansas is even more fun when driving a Jeep that’s equipped with both horsepower and the capability to tow the water toys like the family boat or camper.
