Cane Creek State Park is a 2053acre Arkansas state park in Lincoln County, Arkansas in the United States. Straddling the Gulf Coastal Plain and the Mississippi Delta, the park includes the 1675acre Cane Creek Lake, a wooded lake which borders Bayou Bartholomew, the world's longest bayou. The park became a reality when the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Soil Conservation Service said it would provide federal funds to the project in 1973, prompting the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) to pledge to build and maintain the lake within the park. The park is characterized by rolling wooded hills, deep draws, and steeply sloping ridges.RecreationCane Creek State Park offers many different opportunities for outdoor fun such as kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, backpacking, hiking, and geocaching. The Cane Creek Lake Trail is 15.5mi trail available for hiking or biking that offers hunting along the portion owned by the AGFC. The trail features several unique geological formations as a result of the Gulf Coast Plain meeting the Delta. The camping facilities include 29 class B campsites and one rent-a-RV. A climate-controlled pavilion and traditional pavilion as well as picnic tables are also available for use.

  • This has been one of the most pleasurable hikes I have done in the South, mainly because the 15.5 mile Cane Creek Lake Trail is in excelent shape. It's perhaps strenuous for its length but it's easy t...  more »
  • This is a great park to visit, camp or fish at! Very family friendly! We live close to the area and we've come with our children on field trips and it was wonderful!  more »
  • The cleanest bathrooms I've seen in any park, and for under $40.00 you can rent a boat with a trolling motor for 4 hours, which for me is cheaper than maintaining a boat. Several hiking trails, from 2...  more »

  • Very nice camping area. Nice and shady. Fishing is normally good.
  • I'll never give one more cent or use none of their facilities again at Cane Creek state park!!! The park ranger was not helpful at all!! He'll be the reason why I'll never come back but in other words a beautiful and clean state park with substanal ranger!
  • Beautiful. We have been a few times. Clean park with nice camp pads. 30 and 50 amp (I think (probably close but wrong)) hookups are available and include water and waste dump. It's 20$ a night, so if you're using a tent it's a little high but it's just the right price for campers. Friendly visitors center staff. Fire wood and ice are available at the center. There is also a bait shop beside the visitors center. Bike, kayak, canoe, and other rentals are available, and if you don't have the means to camp there is an rv available to you that's already set up. No excuse is a good ex use here because all you need is to get there (and the fees of course) to go camping and enjoy the great outdoors.
  • Peaceful good hiking trails. Great place too camp and fish.
  • This is a very interesting place and I got to touch an alligator. It was so cool.
