Cane Creek State Park

Check out the pictures, videos, and information below.

Cane Creek State Park straddles two natural divisions in Arkansas. It is located where the rolling terrain of the West Gulf Coastal Plain and the alluvial lands of east Delta of Arkansas meet. It is a fairly small park, but has twenty-nine campsites,  1,675-acre Cane Creek Lake, and a great biking as well as a walking trail.  For people who like to do birding or enjoy viewing wildlife, this park offers a multitude of opportunities. The Bayou Bartholomew just across the lake is the world's longest bayou.

While visiting this park, you may want to visit the Arkansas Post Museum as well as the Arkansas Post National Memorial, both only a few miles from this park. If you wish to enjoy this park, but not camp, check out Star City, Arkansas for accommodations.
