Lake Poinsett is in the process of refilling after several years of being drained for a renovation project. There are fish in the lake, but all fishing is catch-and-release only at this time and bait can be bought at the Visitor Center. Please call the park to inquire whether the water levels are high enough to launch a boat at 1-870-578-2064.

What to know

Lake Poinsett is a small, quiet park that is perfect for getting away for the weekend or just a few hours to fish. There are boat rentals and launch ramps on-site with a bait shop nearby. The day-use area includes several picnic tables for family lunches, a heated and cooled pavilion, a playground for the kids, and an open field for ball games. Year-round interpretive programs educate guests on wildlife and the history of the area with trail hikes and kayak tours available. The trails are easy to traverse for all ages. Facilities also include 29 campsites (four Class A, 22 Class B, and three tent sites). From Harrisburg, the park is 1 mile east on Hwy. 14, then go 2 miles south on Hwy. 163.
