“Serving Smiles since 1890”

The Oark General Store, listed in the Arkansas Register of Historic Places, was opened in 1890 in the isolated community of Oark, when times were a bit different.  The store has served the area ever since.  It has the distinct recognition of being the oldest continually-operating store in Arkansas. The rural community of Oark is surrounded by the Ozark National Forest and has access to many natural settings:  the Mulberry River, a National Wild and Scenic River; the Ozark Highlands Trail, a spectacular 200-mile trail great for dayhikes and camping; as well as countless miles of off-road trails for outdoor enthusiasts, including the legendary Trans-America Trail.   In recent years, the Oark General Store has become an attractive destination for both on and off-road travelers, due to its location along windy and dramatic Ozark highways.  In the last 20 years, the store has transitioned from mainly groceries to a full-service restaurant, while keeping convenience items and gasoline.  Its a one-of-a-kind drive-to-eat experience, with home-style cooking seven days a week, from sun-up to sun-down.  Come see us soon!
