Springdale is the fourth-largest city in Arkansas and is located in both Washington and Benton counties in Northwest Arkansas. Located on the Springfield Plateau deep in the Ozark Mountains, Springdale has long been an important industrial city for the region. Present-day Springdale, with a population of more than 75,000 people, started in the 1850s as a small community named Shiloh. In 2013, Governor Mike Beebe signed an act into law recognizing Springdale as the "The Poultry Capital Of The World". Springdale lays claim to some wonderful water sports destinations, including nearby Beaver Lake and numerous rivers popular with canoeists, including the Mulberry, Kings and Buffalo. Hiking, caving and public camping is available at nearby Devil's Den State Park and Withrow Springs State Park, both less than one hour away.
