Welcome We catch a lot of heck about our silly name, but we are a serious place located just west of Conway in central Arkansas. This website is designed to give you a little information about what you will find in Toad Suck. We hope you will stop by for a visit sometime.
The Legend of Toad Suck Long ago, steamboats traveled the Arkansas River when the water was at the right depth. When it wasn't, the captains and their crew tied up to wait where the Toad Suck Lock and Dam now spans the river. While they waited, they refreshed themselves at the local tavern there, to the dismay of the folks living nearby, who said: "They suck on the bottle 'til they swell up like toads." Hence, the name Toad Suck. The tavern is long gone, but the legend lives on.
