The city of Lowell, once known as Mudtown, is a part of Benton County. It is located in the highlands of Ozarks a plateau eroded to a great degree. The Ozarks have been slowly abraded and sculpted by a number of streams over thousands of years. Today, this natural wonder attracts thousands of nature enthusiasts every year. Here you get an opportunity to enjoy the most picturesque rivers and pristine lakes. The abundance of waterways and variety of fish make Lowell an ideal fishing destination. Tourists can opt for recreational sailing, kayaking and swimming. Hickory Creek Recreation Area & Campground and Lowell Historical Museum are other local places of interest.
