Lake Frierson State Park

Such a quiet retreat especially for those who live in northeastern Arkansas

Check out the slide shows, pictures, videos, and information below.

What a beautiful little park for a retreat from the bustling cities of northeast Arkansas. This park sits along the Crowley Ridge where there are lots of trees and wildflowers and animals to enjoy and a pleasant break from the flatlands of the delta lands that surround this area. The 335-acre lake provides great fishing for bream, catfish, crappie, saugeye, and bass. The Visitor Center has bait and supplies for your fishing. There is even a very small campground, mostly primitive, where one can stay overnight or longer. However, for a weekend day trip, this is just a few miles from Jonesboro and some of the other northeastern cities.  If you have a camper or motor home, you can stay at Crowley's Ridge or Lake Charles State Parks. If you prefer a motel, you can stay in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
