Murfreesboro, located in south west Arkansas, is a part of Pike County. The appeal of this area lies in its immense geological diversity. The town is also host to Crater of Diamonds State Park, which carries the distinction of being the only diamond site in the entire nation accessible to the general public. By paying a nominal fee, tourists can search for diamonds and take home whatever precious stones they stumble upon. The revelation of precious stones is celebrated annually in the month of June with the Diamond Festival. Cowhide Cove Recreation Area & Campground is also a popular local tourist site.
