DEVIL’S DEN STATE PARK OF ARKANSAS

DEVIL’S DEN STATE PARK OF ARKANSAS

1,850 acres. Devil’s Den State Park is in northwest Arkansas, surrounded by Ozark National Forest lands. Scenery includes steep bluffs with overlooks, caves, and rock formations.

Activities: Hiking and backpacking are available on the 14.6-mile Butterfield Backpacking Trail. Much of this trail is in Ozark National Forest, but it starts and ends inside Devil’s Den. The park rents backpacking equipment and periodically offers workshops on backpacking.

There are also 20 miles of horse trails and several miles of mountain bike trails. Canoeing is possible on an 8-acre lake and at times on Lee Creek. Canoes and mountain bikes may be rented in the park. Fishing is available, but hunting is prohibited.

Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed along the Butterfield Backpacking Trail, but only outside of the park’s boundaries. There are three designated campsites. A free permit must be obtained from the park office. There’s also a walk-in camping area within the park, and a fee is charged to camp there.

For Further Information: Devil’s Den State Park, 11333 West Arkansas Highway 74, West Fork, AR 72774;(501)761-3325.
