Chicot State Park reviews
Stayed in a cabin on the water. Spacious, clean and well appointed. Alligators can be seen from the large floor to ceiling windows. Very quiet area, well maintained and patrolled. Price is less...

Great place to stay, even in January. Had a good time. Nice sites with water and elect. Some have a little deck. Fun place for the kids with the lake, fishing dock, playground and kids trail. We enjoyed the dive coming in through the small towns as well.
Took a FREE guided kayak tour with a park ranger. We launched from the north boat ramp and OMG words cannot describe the beauty. Kayak trail is well marked with yellow signs. Lots of plant and animal life can be seen here. Within 5 minutes of my trip I saw 2 small alligators. Sitting in one opening I counted 15 different species of birds. Beautiful spiders and dragonflies. There are lots of wasp(hornet?) nests hanging in low branches but they were very docile and I was able to navigate them easily. This was my first visit to Chicot and I only experienced a very small section. I can’t wait to visit again.
