Lake Chicot State Park

The Mississippi Delta's captivating beauty and recreational opportunities come together at Arkansas's largest natural lake, Lake Chicot. Cut off centuries ago when the Mississippi River changed course, this 20-mile long oxbow lake is a peaceful setting for fishing, boating, and bird watching. Fishing for crappie, bass, and bream is popular on the lake, especially on the upper end of Lake Chicot during spring and fall. Fishing for catfish is great throughout the year.

Located in the Mississippi Flyway, this park offers some of the best year-round birding opportunities in Arkansas. The park offers lake tours, levee tours, and other opportunities for you to view a variety of birds and other wildlife.

Nestled in a pecan grove, the park offers 122 campsites (39 Class AAA, 16 Class AA, and 67 Class B including several sites with Class C options), 14 cabins with kitchens (many with fireplace, lake view patio and fishing dock), a swimming pool (open in summer), picnicking, standard pavilions (screened), laundry and playground. The store/marina offers food, gifts, fuel and bait for sale. Here you'll also find boats, motors and personal water craft to rent, fuel, bait and a launch ramp. The visitor center features interpretive exhibits that tell of the area's history and natural resources. Bicycles can be rented here at the center.

Lake Chicot State Park is on Ark. 144 eight miles northeast of Lake Village.
