Devil's Den State Park

Vacation Travel Guide
Devil\'s Den State Park

This state treasure within a valley in the Ozark Mountains contains the serene Lake Devil and lush woodlands dotted with rustic cabins and lookouts.

Discover a beloved getaway in Arkansas at Devil’s Den State Park, an expansive reserve in the Lee Creek Valley. Established in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the park contains several historic structures built by a collection of the country’s young unemployed men in the midst of the Great Depression. Explore the park via its extensive network of hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trails and stop by heritage pavilions, waterfalls and pretty lakeside picnic spots.

Walk amid the dense forests of oak and hickory, admiring the gentle slopes of the valley within the magnificent Ozarks. Go for a short stroll with one of the park’s interpreters or experience a multiday adventure on the park’s hiking trails, which lead to caves and precipitous bluffs. The 15-mile (24.1 kilometer) Butterfield Hiking Trail is a popular choice for experienced trekkers.

Grab your mountain bike and take a ride through the forest tracks or ride on horseback through more than 20 miles (32 kilometers) of special equestrian trails.

Follow the trail to the stone dam and the vast expanse of Lake Devil. This pretty 8-acre (3.2-hectare) lake has several jetties and rental facilities for canoes and pedal boats.

Overlooking the lake is a café and a swimming pool. Stop by the park’s store to buy picnic supplies and souvenirs. The park’s visitor center provides maps and brochures that detail the park’s activities and history. Inquire here about the program of interpretive and educational events held throughout summer.

Make the most of your trip to Devil’s Den State Park by staying overnight in one of the cabins or campsites. Historic stone cabins are fitted with a wood fire and kitchen facilities. Pitch a tent at a woodland campsite only accessible on foot or on horseback, or stay at one of the park’s RV sites.

Devil’s Den State Park and its visitor center are open year-round for free. The swimming pool and rental facilities have closures in winter. Call the visitor center to ask about the campsite and cabin reservation fees.

Beautiful, out-of-the-way spot but rocky road rough.
"Beautiful wooded spot off the beaten path. Cabin was cozy and clean. Trails were tranquil and relaxing. No shampoo or coffee so bring your own. Road was very rocky just take it slow."
