Due to floodwaters from recent rains, Millwood State Park is closed temporarily beginning May 12. This includes the entire park and all park facilities. The park's closure is anticipated to extend through the first week of June. However, it could extend further.

A series of boat lanes meander through submerged timber, marshes, and oxbow cutoffs making Millwood Lake a "tree-filled" fishing favorite. Famous for bass tournaments, this 29,260-acre lake abounds in largemouth, catfish and crappie. Spring and fall offer anglers great crappie fishing here, and catfish and bream fishing in summer. Bird watching is another popular activity here because of the lake's variety of year-round inhabitants that include eagles.

Park facilities include 105 campsites (29 Class AAA, two Class AA, 71 Class B, and three Primitive), picnic sites, a standard pavilion, self-guided nature trail, and bicycle trail.

A marina offers gift items, groceries, bait, and gas for sale, and fishing boats, canoes, kayaks pedal boats, and hydro bikes for rent. Slip rentals are available throughout the year. [Marina: 870-898-5334]
