This boat dock is located directly behind the campsites that line the lake. Very nice to not have to load your boat up every day.

several of these lake side locations have full hook ups and great views of the lake.

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.

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.
