DEVILS DEN STATE PARK
Lee Creek Valley, a picturesque setting in northwest Arkansas's Ozarks Mountains--ancient sedimentary mountains renowned for their natural beauty and lush oak-hickory forest--was selected as a park site in the 1930s. The Civilian Conservation Corps used native materials to craft the park's CCC/Rustic Style, wood and stone structures that include an impressive native stone dam that spans Lee Creek in the heart of the park forming peaceful 8-acre Devil's Lake. Rental canoes, tandem kayaks, pedal boats and water bikes are available at the park.
Hiking, backpacking and mountain bike trails lead to backcountry areas of Devil's Den State Park and the surrounding Ozark National Forest.Sixteen fully-equipped cabins featuring kitchens and fireplaces are nestled in the natural beauty of this park. The cabins are available throughout the year. Their wood-burning fireplaces are available for use from mid-September thru mid-May.
A park cafe and swimming pool (both open in summer only) overlook the lake. Groceries, gifts and snacks can be purchased at the park store.
Located in Arkansas, this park was established in 1933 as part of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) program. The CCC built many structures using native materials like limestone and wood from local forests. These include cabins, pavilions, bridges and an impressive dam that created Lake Devil.
The site has a rich history dating back to Native American tribes who once inhabited the area thousands of years ago. It is also known for its unique sandstone crevices and caves which have been formed over centuries by erosion.
Over time it became popular among hikers due to its extensive trail system including one leading up to Yellow Rock Overlook with panoramic views across Lee Creek Valley.
Today it offers various recreational activities such as camping, hiking or mountain biking while preserving natural resources for future generations' enjoyment.
