LAKE FRIERSON STATE PARK
Atop the unique landform of rolling hills called Crowley's Ridge, this park on the shore of 335-acre Lake Frierson is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the year-round fishing for bream, catfish, crappie, and bass. The park's natural beauty is enhanced each spring when the wild dogwood trees throughout the park bloom.
Facilities include campsites [four Class C with water and electric hookups, and three Class D (no hookups)] with tables and grills, restrooms, picnic sites, a pavilion, playground, self-guided trail, launch ramp, barrier-free fishing pier, and visitor center with interpretive exhibits. Fishing boat, kayak, and pedal boat rentals are available.
The park is located on Ark. 141 approximately 10 miles north of Jonesboro.
Located in northeast Arkansas, the park was established in 1973. It's named after a local landowner, D.B Frierson. The area covers approximately 335 acres and features Lake Frierson - a man-made reservoir created by damming the Big Running Water Creek.
The lake itself is around 335-acres large and serves as an important recreational site for fishing enthusiasts due to its diverse fish population including catfish, bream, crappie among others.
In addition to water activities like boating or kayaking that are facilitated here; it also offers picnic spots with grills along with camping facilities equipped with modern amenities.
Over time this place has become popular amongst bird watchers too because of various species found there such as bald eagles during winter months.
Facilities include four Standard B campsites with water and electric hookups and three Standard D (no hookups) with tables and grills, restrooms, picnic sites, a pavilion, playground, self-guided trail, launch ramp, barrier-free fishing pier and visitor center with interpretive exhibits.
