Davidsonville Historic State Park (formerly Old Davidsonville State Park) is a 163-acre (66 ha) Arkansas state park in Randolph County, Arkansas in the United States. Situated on a border between The Ozarks and the Arkansas Delta, the park preserves the remains of the abandoned frontier town of Davidsonville. The town was one of Arkansaw Territory's first settlements when founded in 1815, serving as an important river port town on the Black River. The former townsite was made into a state park in 1957 and a monument was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

  • Nice grounds. Clean bathroom. I'm sure the double shower heads in that shower are for handicapped people, since there's a fold down bench as well, but that felt fantastic after riding most of the day.
  • Went camping here for 3 days and my experience was flawless. Park was absolutely beautiful I love that its nothing but history all round the place. I recommend going for a family camping trip. Although you cant swim at the park there is a swim beach 12 miles down the road quick drive very worth it.
