Lake Chicot State Park

Search Lake Village Arkansas

The Mississippi Delta's captivating beauty and recreational opportunities come together at Arkansas's largest lake. This 20-mile long oxbow lake, cut off centuries ago when the Mississippi River changed course, is a peaceful setting for fishing and boating. Crappie, bass and stream fishing is popular, especially on the upper end of the lake during spring and fall. Fishing for catfish is outstanding year-round.

Nestled in a pecan grove, the park offers 127 campsites (Premium w/sewer, Preferred, Class A and Class B), 14 cabins with kitchens (many with lake view patio and fishing dock), a pool (summer), picnicking, standard pavilions, laundry and playground.

You'll find food and gifts at the store/marina, plus boats, motors, personal water crafts, fuel, bait and a launch ramp. The visitor center interprets the area's history and natural resources through exhibits and programs. Bicycles are available.
