As a resident from the south side of the Arkansas River, near Lake Maumelle, I want to make it clear that Lake Maumelle is not anywhere near Maumelle New Town. The Little and Big Maumelle Rivers are on the south side of the Arkansas River, as is Pinnacle Mountain.
Trust me when I say, we have people driving around lost near Lake Maumelle looking for the city of Maumelle, and searching for a bridge to cross the river.
