State Park
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.

  • Older campground. The camp sites can get soggy after a good rain. The cabins are what I would consider fishing cabins...b/c the fishing is great! Some of the cabins have boat docks and water access. Some do not. The visitor center and marina are exceptional. Plenty of educational programs and children's activities for those that don't like to fish.
  • I really had a good time there.
  • Great fishing, and relaxation.
  • Great place to visit
  • Great getaway
