Property Description

DogPatch Village is a 400+ acre natural wonderland located alongside Arkansas’ famous Scenic Byway 7 in northwest Arkansas, only 3 miles north of the Buffalo National River and 43 miles south of Branson, MO. The property has a large year-round spring that feeds a trout farm, two lakes, a grist mill and the famous Marble Falls waterfall. Developed as the theme park home of the Pulitzer Prize winning comic character Lil Abner, Dogpatch opened in 1968 and enjoyed early success with up to 10,000 daily visitors. Climate ignorant investors subsequently added the Marble Falls Ski Resort and converted DogPatch to an unsuccessful thrill park theme forcing closure in 1994.

The Marble Falls Village has tremendous potential for a world class fishing and nature village themed resort. The large spring runs year round and led to the development of the Marble Falls grist mill 175 years ago and the trout farm in the early 1900s. Many of the more desirable DogPatch themed buildings that might compliment future developments have been preserved. The property has four bridges that are in structurally sound condition (need minor refurbishment), a 60’ high train trestle over Marble Falls and two dams/lakes. The property is served by a local water and sewer district.
