A series of boat lanes meander through timber, marshes, and oxbow cutoffs making Millwood Lake a "tree-filled" fishing haven. 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 115 campsites (two Class AAA, two Class AA, 108 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]
