Jasper, Arkansas is an idyllic mountain village smack dab in the middle of the Arkansas Ozark Plateau. It's become well known for its isolation, and for being a favorite of roadtrippers for generations.
Jasper’s biggest boom came from Dogpatch, USA – a theme park opened in the 1960s, based on the famed “Lil Abner” comics by Al Capp. When Dogpatch, USA folded in the 1990s, the area saw a decline, but the reintroduction of elk into the Buffalo National River valley and a growing motorcycling tourism push have brought back much of the town.
