Lake Chicot State Park, Lake Village

#49 of 60 in Nature in Arkansas
Lake Chicot State Park is a 211.6acre Arkansas state park in Chicot County, Arkansas within the Arkansas delta. The park is located along Lake Chicot, a 22mi oxbow lake that was formerly the main channel of the Mississippi River. The lake, formerly a polluted eyesore for the area, has been restored to its current condition through the cooperation of many agencies to return its natural, cultural and recreational value. As the state's largest natural lake and the largest oxbow lake in the United States, Lake Chicot State Park features unique fishing and camping opportunities among large cypress trees, creating a bayou environment for both wildlife and visitors.DescriptionNestled in a pecan grove, the park offers 122 campsites, 14 cabins with kitchens, a swimming pool, picnicking, standard pavilions, laundry and playground. The park operates a combination store/marina which offers food, gifts, fuel and bait for sale and also rents boats, motors and personal water craft and operates a launch ramp. The visitor center features interpretive exhibits that tell of the area's history and natural resources and also rents bicycles.

  • Nice park. We looked at the cabins for a future visit. They are very nice. You can get a one bedroom right on the water front with a private boat dock and a fantastic view. The park staff is very nice...  more »
  • Very nice place. Very clean. Beautiful Lake. Services were excellent. Never felt crowded. Cannot think of ANYTHING negative.
  • Clean, good prices, lots of birds, friendly people. Great place to visit for a while or a pit stop.
  • I love the quiet and peaceful time spent in this park. There are fully furnished cabins as well as an area for RV set up and tent camping. There is a picnic area, playground and swimming pool. Screened pavilions for family gatherings, a boat launch and a small convenience store.
  • We're here now for Labor day weekend and I won't be back. They advertised a boat tour. They didn't have that this weekend. Instead, you could go to the front office and touch dead animal skulls and fur. Seriously. The pool is all they have. $4 a person, even if you don't swim. They also do not allow ANY drinks or food in pool area AND they don't sell anything either. Not. Even. Water. Also, you can't even slide down the slides because there is one lifeguard on duty. What??? Ridiculous.
  • Cabins are outrageous but a nice place to Camp with a beautiful view of the lake.
