#52 of 60 in Nature in Arkansas
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 is a very out of the way State Park that I highly recommend if you enjoy good crappie fishing, camping, kayaking or hiking. They have several beautiful bald eagles living there and the staff are phenomenal and had multiple opportunities to speak with both the check-in desk employees and the on-site Park Service scientist. Pricing is very reasonable and you're very close to the normal amenities that you need when camping out such as Grocers fuel Etc.
  • Went to the GHOST ROAST it was a blast! I recommend you get there early! When we left around 7pm there was an almost 2 mile long line bumper to bumper waiting to get in. We got there 30 minutes early, parked right in the front - got face painted - did costume contest, played games, and trick or treated all the camp sites also road the hay ride. ALL FOR $2 a car! What a blast! Definitely going next year!
  • Very nice park. Lots of camping spots. Nice hiking and biking trail. Open air and enclosed pavilions available to reserve. Nice visitors center with bicycles and kayaks available to rent. Playground with a shaded picnic area. Lake for fishing with several bost ramp locations.
  • Great fishing and kayaking lake. Has a very informative visitors center with year round tours and well kept hiking trails.
  • One of the most well kept trails in the state. All of the facilities even the primitive camping along the 17 mile Delta view was top notch. Keep an eye out for the best water fowl viewing in Arkansas. Thanks!
