MILLWOOD STATE PARK
A series of boat lanes meander through timber, marshes, and oxbow cutoffs making Millwood Lake a "tree-filled" fishing haven. Famous for bass tournaments, this 29,260-acre lake abounds in largemouth, catfish and crappie. Spring and fall offer anglers great crappie fishing here, and catfish and bream fishing in summer. Bird watching is another popular activity here because of the lake's variety of year-round inhabitants, and wintering eagles.
Located in southwest Arkansas, the park was established in 1976. It surrounds Millwood Lake, a renowned fishing and birdwatching spot. The lake itself was created by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers for flood control purposes back in 1966.
The area is known for its diverse wildlife including over 300 species of birds that have been documented there. In addition to natural beauty, it offers recreational activities such as camping, picnicking and boating.
In recent years efforts were made towards improving facilities like campsites and trails while preserving its rich biodiversity.
Park facilities include 115 campsites (two Class AA, 110 Class B, and three Primitive) and one Rent-An-RV, picnic sites, a standard pavilion, self-guided nature trail, and bicycle trail.
A marina offers souvenirs, gift items, groceries, bait, gas, fishing boats, canoes, pedal boats and hydro bikes. Slip rentals are available year round. [Marina: (870) 898-5334
