Walk the Plank in Hot Springs, Arkansas

by Peg Leg Peg

I visited Pirate's Cove on a trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas with my husband. We had a fabulous time, and would recommend it as one of our favorite attractions that the town has to offer.

This miniature golf course is a great time for young couples and families with children, as we saw many of both on our visit. The course was busy, but not overly crowded, making it a very pleasant vacation experience. Fun for the whole family, Pirate's Cove Miniature Golf offers a great time for all.

You will venture forth to a gold course with a pirate-themed atmosphere that is exciting for both children and adults alike. Children will love the re-creations of pirate adventures, such as the ship, complete with plank, and a cave with hidden buried treasure, jewels, and gold bullion.

Adults might also enjoy the gems of background information on some of history's most infamous pirates, such as Blackbeard, posted at each of the 18 holes. I know I did, being a bit of a history buff myself!

In addition to golfing, the family can also enjoy some fun photo opportunities with the pirate statues and in the stocks. One of my favorite photos from that trip was a picture in the stocks; it makes for a very humorous photo opportunity.

The family can also have a frozen treat in the snack bar area and the gift shop offers some fun souvenirs including shirts, coffee mugs, and some other unique items. For more information, the website www.piratescove.net has locations, maps, directions, and more.

Hot Springs Camping

We went through the Hot Springs area a few weeks ago on our family camping trip. We stayed at Lake Catherine State Park and it was very nice. I wish we would have known about the pirate adventure you went on. Next time we go through there... now we know. Thanks!
