  • Was staying in Jonesboro for a couple of days for a baseball tournament. This park is very close to town and offers a variety of things to do. Very cool interpretive center with a free short movie.....  more »
  • Love the nature center. Great place to take the kids to learn about animals and nature. They have theater room that shows a video about how Arkansas was formed thousands of years ago. Walking trails with lookout towers you can climb up to look out over the area through a telescope. Lots of live snakes, fish, turtles, etc... to view. They also have a gift shop to get a souvenir of your trip there. Highly recommend!
  • We always take the grandkids here when they come up....but more importantly, we visit a few times a year on our own. It is really neat to see some of the animals they have on the property and learn more about our wildlife. My husband loves the shooting gallery game the best. The kids craft center downstairs is fun. And if you catch it just right, you will get to see them feed the gators or maybe even pet one!
  • Upon a recommendation from a gentleman next to us at the state park, we stopped in for a visit, and it was well worth the drive. The video on the formation of Crowley's Ridge was educational, and well worth its time. The nature trail behind the center was awesome with its elevated walkways over the marshlands, and the tower looking over the prairie. If the nature center staff reads this, add a donation box near the entrance! I looked around for one, and finally asked the front desk, only to find out they had to ring up donations... not a huge deal, but having a box would certainly bring in more funds.
  • Well laid out. Lots of information at the various exhibits as well as numerous live animals, most all reptiles and amphibians including alligators. Would be nice to have a few mammals maybe but still a variety of wildlife to see. Nice gift shop and the outside walking trails are impressive.
  • One of our favorite places to take the kids. Love the walk through the trails ans enjoy the slower part of life.
