    Yeah, Heber Springs doesn't offer what Hot Springs does, but it's still prettier than anyplace you'd go in North Louisiana. Plus you could catch a record trout or take the family out to The Red Apple Inn.

    Ah the Red Apple Inn that was my honeymoon destination. Great place, espicially for a youngster without much money and only a little time.

    Yep, we took a couple cruises just after sundown. Very nice.

    The fireworks from the boat was one of the best experiences i have ever had on a boat. Fireworks above and surrounded by red&green bow lights. I waited until mosf everyone cleared out before i pulled anchor.

    I will definately refer to this thread when we start planning next years trip. Thanks everyone!

But be sure and have your proper equipment. I sat on our condo balcony Friday night and watched the blue lights pull over boat after boat. We had to leave Saturday. I bet it was nuts on the lake following the Saturday night fireworks.

    Caught the flu after skinny dipping with a fraternity brother's sister and another girl below the dam years ago. Sorry dawgmatic. Even a Southern Gentleman gives in to his weaknesses every once in a while.

    Went there for the fourth 2 years ago, didn't do much boating, but did the fireworks from the boat, and that was cool. Lost my anchor, had to cut it loose after fighting with it for 20 minutes.

    Two years in a row I have missed seeing fireworks on Lake Hamilton by one night. We did go see the Lake Degray fireworks on the 4th. I know I am biased, but I thought our show on Lake Claiborne is better than the Degray show. The Degray show pulled in lots of people. There were several hundred boats on the lake, and a huge crowd watching from the lodge. There were also people down every side road leading to the lodge. If y'all haven't seen the Lake Claiborne Show yet you should give it a chance.
