I live in Fayetteville. Where is a good nearby location for viewing? I have tried Savoy and near Mt Gaylord. Both are decent HOWEVER I have been told that I cant sit on the shoulder as it is posted no trespassing. Didnt think that would include the grass shoulder. Oh well. Suggestions? My backyard in the city isnt a good option.

I am not real familiar with the Fayetteville area. I am sure there are some real good locations.....

Lake Fort Smith State Park is one of my favorites Laughing Out Loud ...................

Lake Fort Smith seems like a good spot. A little bit of a drive but a better low light spot than around Fayetteville. Devils Den would be good but had a fair amout of side obstruction from trees and hills. Closer to Fayetteville, Prairie Grove Battlefield and Hickory Creek are good options.
