Lake Chicot State Park is a 211.6acre Arkansas state park in Chicot County, Arkansas within the Arkansas delta. The park is located along Lake Chicot, a 22mi oxbow lake that was formerly the main channel of the Mississippi River. The lake, formerly a polluted eyesore for the area, has been restored to its current condition through the cooperation of many agencies to return its natural, cultural and recreational value. As the state's largest natural lake and the largest oxbow lake in the United States, Lake Chicot State Park features unique fishing and camping opportunities among large cypress trees, creating a bayou environment for both wildlife and visitors.
Nestled in a pecan grove, the park offers 122 campsites, 14 cabins with kitchens, a swimming pool, picnicking, standard pavilions, laundry and playground. The park operates a combination store/marina which offers food, gifts, fuel and bait for sale and also rents boats, motors and personal water craft and operates a launch ramp. The visitor center features interpretive exhibits that tell of the area's history and natural resources and also rents bicycles.

Lake Chicot State Park Reviews
Beautiful, clean and well kept RV park. Lake was drawn down during our stay, but will definitely return. more »
Very nice RV park. Very clean campsites. We had a great time fishing and hiking. We were lucky, with great weather although very hot. We couldn’t have picked a nicer park for a group of 8 friends... more »
Very well maintained park and plenty of family activities and accommodations. Bathrooms along with the landscape were kept super clean. We had a blast
We had heard about the "splash pad" at the park and decided to take the kids. It was very decently priced but when we got there it was not what we expected. When we hear splash pad we think of a flat surface with water shooting out of various spots that are fun and kids can run around, from previous experiences. But there was no "pad" so to speak. Only a pool with an area that has water shooting out in the shallow part of the pool. The deepest was only 5 and half feet and it also included 2 small water slides. All in all it was still fun for the kiddos but was misleading with the advertising of a "splash pad."
