The Amazing Tropical Getaway in the Treetops of Arkansas Not Far from Texarka

If these cooler temperatures have you thinking about booking a tropical getaway this spring or summer, but you’re still a little wary of air travel, then you really need to check this out. There’s a tropical getaway in a treehouse on an Arkansas lake.

The tree house is also close to Texarkana. It’s the toucan hut located in Arkadelphia. This tropical jungle is set on 250 acres with five miles of nature trails to explore. The treehouse and gardens span 10 acres. Oh, and there’s a cool tropical lagoon too!

The treehouse itself has 2 bedrooms and 3 beds, so it sleeps 5 with one bathroom. Look at these pictures!
