This is a nice park not far from the main road. Many of the campsites have water and electricity and some have nice wood decks. Trashcans at every site. Cell reception is poor but there is fee wifi around the campground. Not many bathhouses, just 2 and the one I used had only two showers. The bathrooms need a bit... More

We went camping at Chicot State Park for Easter. We had a nice campsite, it was large. We went over to the Arboretum and walked around. It was nice.

First the negatives: 1) No working WiFi at cabins for our entire stay, despite being told the day before arrival that it worked. This would normally not be a problem for us, but considering that none of is had cellular phone service either, it was a bit of an issue. 2) Kitchen was infested with big black ants - not... More

RV camping was perfect. However, walking through the park we saw a creepy guy in a late model car driving towards the south campground. When we got back to our campground, he was just coming out of the deserted bathroom, got in his car, and left in the same direction we saw him come in. So take protection if the... More

This is a great park with over 100 camp sites. From tent campers to Class A's, everyone should be able to find a place. We stayed in a 32' foot 5th wheel. One has to be careful as some sites are not level, and trees may prohibit slide extension. I called the park directly with my needs and found a... More

Deluxe cabins are great. Very clean on the inside. Only complaint is the glass walls are getting dirty. We have been going there twice a year for about 15 years and every time they seem to be a litter more dirty slightly hindering the view. Also we had reservations for the kids birthday but they drained and closed the lake... More

Our family took our first trip family camping to Chicot State Park. We got there and pitched our tent. Right as we were finishing, it started to rain on us, then that night we noticed that everyone was sliding off their mattresses because we pitched our tent on a slope. But this is all operator error/weather error. This state park... More

We went here for the first time this past weekend. We rented a deluxe cabin at $150/night. The furniture is very outdated. Can definitely use upgrading. The screened in porch could also use a good pressure wash. Spiders everywhere. We should have pitched a tent outside we may have endured the same experience. Other than cabin furniture being outdated, and... More
