Lake Chicot State Park, AR



We left Maumelle Park this morning and drove 140 miles southeast to Lake Chicot State Park, near lake Village, AR in the middle of nowhere. It’s a nice enough park but the roads are in horrible condition and we were warned they have an ant problem. Maybe why there is hardly anyone here. We opted for a 30 amp water and electric site for $20 but could have had a lakefront full hookup site for $28, or $31 for a 50amp pull through. I wanted to wash some clothes so we took a site right behind the laundry building. Better than dragging everything to a laundromat.

Went for a walk around the park this evening. The sites on the water were angled so they all had nice views of the lake through the trees.


We saw this egret and lots of cypress trees.




We have a few more pictures from Maumelle Park. We really liked it there, and decided to stay another night. Our site was reserved for Monday so we moved to another one two sites over. It had an even better view and we didn’t want to leave, partly due to the great weather, getting to visit with Terry, and Alan and Marilyn, and the wonderful biking. Also the visits by raccoons and skunks!


We did another bike ride yesterday to Two Rivers Park and rode the trails in the park and across the first pedestrian/bike bridge on the Arkansas River trail.

We passed these really nice homes on the way that are right on the river.


Some scenes from Two Rivers Park.




And the moon over the river last night.


Tomorrow we’ll be in Mississippi.


  1. You've been in some very nice parks in Arkansas. We were in Petit Jean in the spring and liked it very much.

    Wish I knew how you two manage to get out, drive, get set up and then have time to look around the park all in one day. You must be much more organized than we are. :-)

  2. That sure looks like a beautiful park. Hope the ants weren't too bad! The scenery is fantastic.
