Devil's Den Trail
Dam on Lee Creek
Devil's Den is one of Arkansas' most scenic parks especially during the fall when we visited. The park was built in the 1930's by the CCC, and many of the original buildings are still used. The rock formations are unusual and the vistas are outstanding. There are hiking, biking, and horse trails in the park. The wildlife and flora are extensive. There is a small lake created by a rock dam on Lee Creek, which has a beautiful water fall in the spring and the rainy periods. If you plan to camp in the park, there is an excellent campground with some sites having full hookups as well as a section for horse camping. The park also offers rustic cabins for rent. If you want a motel, check out Mountainburg or Fayetteville, Arkanasas
There is also information from the Arkansas State Park Site.
