Directions to ONSC:
Our address is 1905 Madison 1305, Huntsville, AR 72740. GPS will show you the way but you might not have service all the way, so save these directions before you head out.
Directions if you are traveling from the south (Huntsville area): at the intersection of Highway 412 and 23, travel N on 23 about 11 miles. On 23, note the large, brown sign for Ozark Natural Science Center (ONSC). Turn right on to Madison County Rd 30/County Rd 1250, a gravel road.
Directions if you are traveling from the north (Rogers, Eureka Springs, etc): From the intersection of Highway 23 and 12 (note convenience store), travel S on 23 about 4.3 miles. Note the large, brown sign for Ozark Natural Science Center. Turn left on to Madison County Rd 30/County Rd 1250, a gravel road.
Once you’ve turned from Hwy 23 onto County Road 1250, go about a mile on the dirt road and then you will turn left onto County Road 1305 (a smaller dirt road). You’ll see another brown sign at the turn that says Ozark Natural Science Center. County Road 1305 is a little rough, so go slowly. Stay on it about 2 miles. This will take you straight onto the ONSC campus. You will pass through a gate and then the road will open up and you'll be at a Y with a turnaround area for buses and parking area for cars. Turn right and drive to the main parking lot.
