Chicot State Park reviews
Wish we could have spent the night at one of the cabins, but we had to postpone our trip with a week and could not modify the reservation to fit the new dates due to no availability. Instead we did..... more »
The trails were really nice, lots of wildlife and wonderful views of the lake. Great place to take kids since it also has a playground and a splash pad. Really good place to go boating and kayaking. The Arboretum area is pretty nice since it has the nature center and also some really unique trails that take you all the way over to the old Arboretum area.
Had a great time...beautiful scenery and quiet. Everything was great...had a cabin that was beautiful. Only issue was a crack in the tub so only could take a shower and some light bulbs need takin care of of on the pier. Besides that can't wait to go back.
