I had mentioned Harrison in another thread, then did some research and am planning a visit this spring. My question is what are your thoughts on Mountain Home too? Remember I'm looking for Horse property within half an hour of a good bass lake. I looked on a map and Mountain Home looks right next to 2 lakes....

Mountain Home IS located between Bull Shoals and Norfork lakes. Moutnain Home (Baxter County) is wet, if that makes a difference to you. Suitable land for horses is available in either place.

Thanks for the Reply,
Being Wet or Dry does not really matter to me, If I was to have a beer or two it would be at home anyway...
Mostly just looking for a place that values hunting and fishing and horses...

I was in Mountain Home today. Went to Lowe's and out to lunch. I like MH just a little to big for me. I am sure you can fined the horse property outside the city..

Cali, I'd have to agree with Junkman...get away from town a little bit. You're from California and probably used to a lot of traffic, but there's a lot to be said for being away from all that. Mountain Home is the beiiger of the two towns, but Harrison is probably easier to learn and get around and is closer to Branson and Springfield, the major shopping mecca.

You guys are right, I guess either town would have a store to shop at, and all the stuff a guy would need? Grocery Store, Doctor, Hardware Store, Feed Store etc.etc... and your right I don't want to live in town but oustside of town a few miles.... Are the area's the same???

I travel all over northern arkansas with my job, but still choose to live in harrison. harrison for me is just a little more laid back than mt home, but harrison is the bigger town of the two by population. harrison is also located by two lakes. you have bull shoals which is a great bass fishing lake as well as walleye, catfish, and crappie. then you have table rock lake which is also a great bass lake but for me is an great crappie lake. both lakes are about 20 30 minutes away. but one of my favorite fishing spots around harrison is crooked creek which is a blue ribbon small mouth stream. it runs right through town. then there is the option of a nice canoe float down the buffalo river, which does have okay fishing.
