Arkansas, near the center of the Ouachita Forest.  Its geography is
upland forest, being on the eastern slope of the Ouachita Mountains.  
Mount Ida is the county seat of Montgomery County. The city is near Lake
Ouachita and Hot Springs.  Mount Ida is the location of the county's
Chamber of Commerce.  

The Ouachita National Forest, the South's oldest and largest national
forest, is a sprawling wilderness of 1.6 million acres.  The lakes,
mountains, ridges, and streams in the area are a paradise for sports
and nature lovers.  There are 480 miles of hiking trails and an
abundance of campgrounds.

The Ouachita and Caddo Rivers are known for float trips with canoes
and rafts.  Floaters experience the beautiful scenery, wildlife, clean
water, and good fishing as they pass forested hillsides, pastures, and
massive rock bluffs.  Campgrounds offer excellent stopping points, with
vehicular access to the rivers.
