Things To Do

Overview

Located where the rolling terrain of the West Gulf Coastal Plain and the alluvial lands of east Arkansas's Mississippi Delta meet, this park offers visitors the opportunity to explore two of Arkansas's distinct natural settings in one visit. Hike or bike the park's 2,053 acres of woodlands in the Coastal Plain. Paddle or fish on 1,675-acre Cane Creek Lake, a timbered Delta lake, and experience the lush beauty and abundant wildlife that inhabit Arkansas's Mississippi Delta. Just across the timber-filled lake, anglers and paddlers can also explore Bayou Bartholomew, the world's longest bayou.

Park staff offer guided walking, biking, kayaking, and birding tours, and other interpretive programs throughout the year.

The campground at Cane Creek features 29 campsites (Class B) and one Rent-An-RV, and a modern bathhouse with hot showers. The RV is permanently set up on a campsite featuring water, electric, and sewer hookups.

Cane Creek State Park also features picnic sites, a screened pavilion, enclosed climate-controlled pavilion, visitor center with exhibits and gift shop, launch ramp, barrier-free fishing piers, hiking trail, kayak trail, bathhouse, restrooms, and a playground. Fishing boats, recreational solo and tandem kayaks, and bicycles can be rented at the visitor center.

Hiking, backpacking, mountain biking trails, and a kayak trail offer outdoor adventure including birding and other wildlife viewing opportunities. The 15.5-mile, multi-use trail goes through rolling terrain, along the lake, and across many bridges including three spectacular suspension bridges. There is also a 2.4-mile multi-use trail for smaller adventures. The park's 2-mile kayak trail offers a relaxing outdoor aquatic adventure.
