  • We love lake Catherine state park better than any state park in Ark so much that we go for 2 weeks every summer. Best camping area we have ever seen plenty of space for more privacy.
  • Came here to celebrate my 52nd birthday. Enjoyed the hiking trails, they were well blazed and challenging. Cabin was nice and equipped. It was nice and relaxing. Had a nice visit.
  • The hike was beautiful. We did the red trail in about 2 hours unfortunately the falls were dried to a trickle. It was very disappointing. If your sole purpose is for visiting the falls skip this. Otherwise camping and hiking are awesome!
  • Very nice and well maintained park. Trails are nice and well marked. Public bathroom was locked though which was a little inconvenient.
  • Spacious sites, beautiful CG on a lake, well maintained and clean. Lots of trails and full hook-up too. We were only there 2 nites, wish we could have stayed longer. Peaceful.
