Special Notice — November 24, 2014

Following renovation of the dining hall/kitchen, the group lodging area at Crowley's Ridge State Park has reopened. The structure's renovation included new flooring and windows, window coverings, the addition of LED track lighting, upgrading of the electrical system, installation of a Mitsubishi mini-split system (HVAC), a new kitchen with updated equipment including an Ansul fire suppression system in the vent hood over range. The building now features a new entrance, new restroom building behind dining hall, and outside lighting. The renovation work also included landscaping/erosion improvements and the repair and replacement of some of the cypress logs on this historic structure dating from the 1930s and built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The reopening also includes the group lodging area's five bunk cabins and bathhouse. For additional details, contact the park at: 870-573-6751.

Atop the forested hills in northeast Arkansas, Crowley's Ridge State Park occupies the former homestead of Benjamin Crowley, whose family first settled this area.

Native log and stone structures, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, set the mood for this park's rustic warmth. Park facilities include a group lodging area featuring five bunk cabins, a kitchen/dining hall and bathhouse; four fully-equipped, modern duplex cabins with kitchens [in two duplex units]; 26 campsites (18 Class B and eight Tent Sites); picnic areas; snack bar; trails; standard pavilions; baseball field; 31-acre fishing lake (electric motors only); and a 3 1/2-acre swimming lake. The park offers fishing boat, kayak, and pedal boat rentals. Interpretive programs are offered here throughout the year.

Crowley's Ridge State Park is 15 miles north of Jonesboro on Ark. 141; or nine miles west of Paragould on U.S. 412, then two miles south on Ark. 168.
