Special Notice — September 4, 2015

Due to current dry conditions, a county judge-issued burn ban for Faulkner County is in effect at Woolly Hollow State Park. Campers should take note that while this burn ban is in effect, no wood fires are allowed. Only gas grills or charcoal fires in grills are allowed until the burn ban is lifted. To check which counties are currently under burn bans, visit the Arkansas Forestry Commission website at: www.arkfireinfo.org/.

Here in central Arkansas in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, enjoy fishing, floating, and swimming in the peaceful waters of 40-acre Lake Bennett. The park offers canoes, kayaks, pedal boats, and fishing boats for rent. Anglers will need to bring bait and fishing supplies since there are no commercial docks on the lake. The park includes a launch ramp. A snack bar and bathhouse with hot showers are near the swimming beach. Park facilities also include 30 Class AAA campsites and 10 Tent Sites without hookups. Woolly Hollow also offers a picnic area, standard pavilion, gift shop, and a hiking trail to enjoy. Woolly Cabin, the log home of the area's first settlers, offers visitors a historic perspective of the park.

In conjunction with National Trails Day on June 7, 2014, the park's new Enders Fault Mountain Bike Trail was dedicated. This approximately 10-mile hiking and mountain bike trail takes its name from the area's active seismic fault line just north of the park. Featuring the rolling terrain found here in foothills of the Ozark, this single-track trail leads through gentle valleys along pristine creeks and climbs over 150 feet to offer views of Lake Bennett from ridges above during winter months. Cyclists may choose to ride the entire trail or divide it into two loops, the North Loop and the South Loop. The North Loop is approximately 4.17 miles of smooth single-track tread through rolling hills, and including short climbs through the mostly hardwood forest, with minor technical challenges and a few seasonal creek crossings. The South Loop is approximately 5.67 miles of mostly smooth tread, a few moderate climbs, and some fast sections through evergreen groves. This loop offers ridgeline views of Lake Bennett during times of winter leaf off, seasonal creek crossings, and a mile-long hillside decent.

Take Exit #125 off I-40 at Conway and travel 12 miles north on U.S. 65, then go six miles east on Ark. 285 to the park.
