The Laurel River Store : A great place for fishing information, coffee, snacks, treats, supplies, arts and crafts
Jemima Cook grew up in Madison County.  She is one of 9 children raised in this beautiful mountain community.  She went off to college and then returned to open her own store which serves river runners and wayfaring  travelers all kinds of treats for the trail.

If you need fishing supplies, this is a great place to stop. Jemima's husband works as a fly fishing guide. They both are very familiar with the Laurel River and can give you great advice for a fun day playing by the river. To check for river levels, visit them on facebook. 

The Laurel River Store is located on Hwy 25/70 about 5 miles north of Hot Springs. It is located on the Laurel River. 

Jemima serves up locally roasted coffee and locally made ice cream. For hot days, she has snow cones and Italian Sodas.  Locally made bakery items line her counter along with local arts and crafts.

The Laurel River trail is just beyond the store as you turn right toward Marshall on  Hwy 25/70.  The parking lot here is a great place to leave your car for this  6 mile in and out hike to Runion. 

Stop by the Laurel River store.  It's a great place to take a break and enjoy some mountain hospitality.
