Dogpatch is located in Newton County east of Fayetteville, between Harrison and Jasper along Hwy 7 on the banks of the Kings River near Ozark National Forest.
Local residents petitioned the post office and the name of the town was changed to Marble Falls in 1997, but Dogpatch can still be found on many maps. Dogpatch took its name from an amusement park that opened here in 1968. Over a thousand acres were originally set aside for development. The park was based on a popular comic strip called Li'l Abner which was set in the fictional town of Dogpatch, known in the strip as the most miserable place on earth.
