Located where the rolling terrain of the West Gulf Coastal Plain and the alluvial lands of east Arkansas's Mississippi Delta regions meet, this park offers you the opportunity to explore two of Arkansas's distinct natural settings in one visit. Hike, run or bike the park's 2,171 acres of woodland areas in the Coastal Plain. Paddle or fish on 1,675-acre Cane Creek Lake, a timbered Delta lake, and experience the natural beauty and abundant wildlife that inhabit Arkansas's Mississippi Delta. Just across the timber-filled lake, anglers and paddlers can also explore Bayou Bartholomew, the world's longest bayou.
Park staff offer guided walking, biking, kayaking, and birding tours, and other interpretive programs throughout the year.
