The world record for a brown trout (40 pounds, 4 ounces) was set in May 1992 on the Little Red River, 29 miles of which had become suitable trout habitat with the completion of the Greers Ferry Dam in the early 1960s. This record stood until it was surpassed in 2009.
WHAT TO DO IN AREA:
A very partial list: Trout fishing, kayak rentals, hiking, pontooning on Greer's Ferry Lake, rock climbing.
This River is tailwaters from a dam at Greers' Ferry Lake. It is extremely cold, even in August. It is too cold and swift for the average swimmer. The temperature off the water is delightful to feel sitting on the dock on a late summer evening. The level and flow fluctuates daily and is controlled by the Corp of Engineers. There are nearby creeks and lakes to go swimming in detailed in our Locals' Guide sent at confirmation.

8 travelers: 4 adults and 4 teenagers had plenty of room to spread out inside and out at this awesome location. The front yard is perfect for the kids to play football, or to set up your lawn games (smaller side yard that is shaded also). You are at the end of the road next to the boat launch so there’s plenty of privacy and easy access to launch if you have a boat. No fish cleaning station so plan ahead...there is a hose on the side of the house and we had our own cleaning table. The river. What can I even say?! It’s beautiful and we enjoyed watching the water levels rise and fall throughout the day according to dam release and closure. We caught some great trout off the dock and never left the house once! The dock has a bistro table for four, but we set up our lawn chairs also... Plenty of fishing boats, kayaks, and canoes floating by at all times of the day (we will float the river next time) which do not interrupt your fishing experience at all!! The home was stocked with everything—and more—than we could possibly need. The beds were soft and the bedding was comfortable for all. The kitchen had plenty of what you need to prepare all meals and there’s a propane grill outside—along with a fire pit. We bought cold groceries in Heber Springs at Walmart, per the recommendation, but will stop in Greenbrier, along the highway, next time so we don’t have to get off in Heber. It depends on the route you take so please just plan on what’s best for you and yours. 😊 I cannot day enough about the location and cleanliness: book with confidence and go enjoy your time with family and friends!
My family loved this house on the Little Red River. Everything was so comfortable, and all the supplies you could possibly need were provided. The deck and dock were lovely and perfect for enjoying the morning/evening mist on the river. Grill and fire pit were also great. Huge front yard is perfect for playing soccer. Access to several marinas on Greers Ferry also easy. Wifi was reliable for the day I had to work. I can't say enough good things about this property! We will be back!
A truly wonderful home away from home! This house was wonderful and was an excellent place for my two boys. It really felt at home there and the house is stocked, even in the garage! It was comfortable and I found myself just wanting to lay around to take in the surroundings. The opportunity to fish and to teach my boys that is a memory that I definitely will not forget. We really and truly had a great time and it was hard to leave. The host(s) were super responsive and friendly. This house definitely exceeded my expectations and I would love to stay there again, the next time we are in Arkansas. Beautiful place and experience indeed!!
Everything was perfect at Dripping Springs! You can’t beat the location(directly on the little red river), the house was neat and very clean, it had nice comfy beds, and everything we needed was right there! The management was top notch, professional, and knowledgeable. They provided us with any and every detail for the house and surrounding area. We will definitely be back!
This home is perfect. The location is amazing. Located next to river access is really nice if fishing! If not, coffee overlooking the river from the deck or boat dock is not to be missed! Our group had a wonderful time and made memories to last a lifetime. Thank y’all for the chance to enjoy your home. G. Hall
The place was good. My husband's only complaint was the dock had no lights or electricity. I do wish they had an iron and ironing board.
We loved the facilities and location. Plenty of room for 7 people. Kitchen capable of creating wonderful meals. We laid aside all of our plans so we could enjoy the fire pit as the beautiful river flowed by.
What an amazing location with beautiful views of the Little Red River! Enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the river while drinking my coffee in the morning, and sitting around the fire pit at night with a bourbon in hand. Amazing fly fishing as well. This place was great and had everything we needed...will definitely be back!
Had a wonderful time at this cabin location. I love to cook, and I spent most of my time cooking in the kitchen for a family holiday meal. It was just marvelous. It was very nice watching holiday shows on the large t.v. When I took breaks, going outside to the walk by the river or just enjoy the deck was perfect. It's very spacious. Very enjoyable.
Would happily come again and had everything that we needed.
It was a beautiful place. Thanks so much.
Great experience from start to finish. We we’re looking to get away for the weekend and relax, and this was the perfect place. Everything we needed was there and the host was very helpful. We are already looking forward to coming back very soon.
The Dripping Springs house is ideally located next to launching ramp for the Little Red River. Beautiful view overlooking the river with its own private dock with boat lift. Good sized master bedroom and bath with whirlpool tub and separate cultured marble shower. The deck overlooking the river and the firepit are both fantastic. Only minor negatives were - they need to spend a little money to buy enough plates and bowls so you don't have to wash dishes after every single meal. Trash from preceding guest was left in garage so after our week there is way more trash than what will fit in the 2 provided cans. The wood for firewood was freshly cut and not seasoned. Was a bit of a challenge getting it to maintain a fire. Overall a great place that I highly recommend.
Excellent place. Wonderful experience. Highly recommend
The Dripping Spring Retreat is a beautiful and large house right on the little red river. It has everything our family needed for a great weekend trip! Beautiful views, comfortable and convenient seating on the deck and dock, and a fun fire pit right next to the house! Can't wait to return!
We had the BEST time!!! Everything was there we could’ve possibly needed. The only thing, we never figured out the Roku device for living room. But we didn’t go to watch tv! We fished, had campfires, roasted marshmallows and even went into Heber to Sandy Beach one day. We will definitely be back! Thanks for a great trip!
Everything about this was perfect! The property was beyond nice and very well maintained. Easy to find, even though it doesn't show up on GPS (which they tell you and give you ample directions). There wasn't cell service (AT&T) but the fast wifi more than made up for that. Honestly, it was exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely stay here again.
My family had such a relaxing time and caught trout from the private dock each day we fished. The house was so nice and spacious. We loved our stay and plan to come back again.
The Dripping Springs cabin sits right on the Little Red River in a great area- wonderful fishing and beautiful. The cabin is great with a wonderful view from the porch, even sitting in the living room. The management group and the owners are top notch.
Super clean and well stocked home with the perfect location on the Little Red River! All questions were answered promptly.
The property was very clean, nice, and fulfilled our expectations.
Dripping Springs was the best place to stay. Ivy Vacations were so good to work with. The location was not far for us to travel. It was a restful time for my family. I highly recommend Ivy Vacations and the Dripping Springs Retreat.
We didn’t know what to expect other than the pictures posted online. Sometimes, pictures can be deceiving. That is not the case with this property. It went above and beyond our expectations. We will revisit.
Very nice and well-maintained house right on the Little Red River. Very quiet and private, despite being next to the public boat launch. The house was clean and very well stocked with kitchen appliances, pots/pans, etc. Beautiful dock on the water. Perfect view down the river of the amazing Fall colors in the trees! Only needs are updated furniture...the living room furniture is dated and worn, not very comfortable. But, it wouldn't keep us from coming back...just a recommendation.
This is our second stay at one of the Ivy Vacation Rental houses, and we are already looking forward to a third! So cozy, awesome river access, and very peaceful and quiet. Shay was wonderful to communicate with, and even let us check in a little early! The only thing we had any trouble with was the WiFi- it worked, just wasn’t very strong. Wouldn’t deter us from staying here again, just wanted to make anyone aware who might be thinking of getting some work done remotely during their stay.
Just go ahead and book it. Super clean, several amenities, easy access to water- literally quite dreamy, easy drive from Central Arkansas and great responsive hosts.
Absolutely beautiful home!! Very clean! We had a wonderful time! Thank y’all!
