The White Oak Lake State Park is adjacent to Poison Springs State Forest and on Lower White Oak Lake. This pine forested area has hiking trails and 10 miles of bicycle trails to enjoy. People who come here can camp, fish, watch birds, or just enjoy the serenity of the park. When we visited in the spring of 2015, there was a reenactment event going on with British and French troops from the pre-revolutionary war period. This Annual French Colonial Days and other events are staged at this park. The park campgrounds are exceptionally nice, but if you want a motel to stay in while visiting this park, check out facilities in Hope, Arkansas.

This park is located very close to Bluff City, Arkansas, on a beautiful lake. The lake was drained in 2014 so the fishing should be producing fairly well by this year.
The Campgrounds are nice and most sites are on the lake or have a view of the lake. There is a nice marina and supply store at the visitor center.

These 22 pictures were taken at the reenactment that we attended in 2015.
After the event the canon and muskets are available for visitors to look over.
