Horseback riding has become a popular pastime at this park, the second largest park in land area in the Arkansas state parks system.



Twelve miles of horse trails wind through the rolling hills and beautiful forest of Crowley's Ridge. Horse trails are open March through November when the ground is dry. Call the park for trail conditions and closings. Camping with horses is not available in the park at this time.

Two parks, DeGray Lake Resort and Lake Catherine, offer guided trail rides. Here, you and your family will follow experienced guides on designated routes. Reservations are recommended.


Here you can enjoy the unique geology of Crowley's Ridge, a landform of rolling hills in eastern Arkansas's Mississippi Alluvial Plain. A geologic anomaly, the ridge is covered with a lush climax Beech-Maple forest featuring oak, sugar maple, beech, butternut and tulip poplar. Park interpretive programs and exhibits share the story of the natural and cultural heritage of Crowley's Ridge. Five park trails totaling seven miles allow hikers the opportunity to explore this forest on their own, or on guided trail walks. The park also includes 15 miles of horse trails. Anglers can fish for bass, bream, catfish and crappie at the park's two lakes, Lake Austell and Lake Dunn. Launch ramps, boat docks, bait, fishing boats, electric motors and pedal boats are available late-spring through Labor Day.

The park campground includes 96 campsites including Premium A, Standard A and Standard B sites around Lake Dunn. Nestled on a nearby ridge are the park's 10 fully-equipped cabins that feature kitchens and wood-burning fireplaces. At Lake Austell, picnic sites are situated near a sandy beach and sun deck. The park also includes four standard pavilions (one is enclosed), playgrounds, baseball and multi-use fields, and a driving range.

The park visitor center includes an A/V theater, store, gift shop and bicycle rentals. The interpretive center offers a large meeting facility and The Discovery Room that features exhibits of prehistoric artifacts and information about the wildlife of Crowley's Ridge. Interpreters offer programs, concerts and special events throughout the year.

Take Exit #242 off I-40 at Forrest City and go 13 miles north on Ark. 284 to the park.
