Looking for Arkansas lakes where lake tours are offered? Several parks offer interpreter-led Arkansas lake cruises and swamp tours.
DeGray Lake Resort State Park on 13,800-acre DeGray Lake offers party barge excursions led by park interpreters to enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife that abound on this crystal-clear lake, one of the five
renowned Diamond Lakes of southwest Arkansas.
Lake Chicot State Park offers a unique look at Arkansas's largest natural lake and the cypress swamp-like habitat of egrets, herons, eagles, ibis and the endangered wood stork. Lake Chicot, in southeast
Arkansas, is one of the state's birding hotspots and the nationally acclaimed Levee Tour (auto) and the swamp boat tours are excellent ways to add excitement to your vacation and birds (and alligator, mink, deer and armadillo) to your life list.
Lake Ouachita State Park, in the heart of the Ouachita Mountains, has become famous for cruises on the largest of Arkansas's lakes. The lake tour is a relaxing way to see the exposed results of the severe
folding and faulting that created these beautiful mountains.
