Welcome to Cane Creek State Park, one of 52 beautiful, historic state parks, each with their own special mission. The other thing they each have is a geocache.

Located where the rolling terrain of the West Gulf Coastal Plain and the alluvial lands of east Arkansas's Mississippi Delta meet, Cane Creek State Park offers you the opportunity to explore two of Arkansas's distinct natural settings in one visit. Hike or bike the park's 2,053 acres of woodlands in the Coastal Plain. Paddle or fish on 1,675-acre Cane Creek Lake, a timbered Delta lake, and experience the lush beauty and abundant wildlife that inhabit Arkansas's Mississippi Delta.
