Millwood State Park RV & Campground Guide

Arkansas

The meandering of the boat lanes through marshes and timbers makes Millwood Lake the perfect fishing destination. The park is located on a 29,260-acre lake and hosts various fish species like catfish, bass, and crappie. Birding is also popular here because of the wintering eagles and other year-round inhabitants of the lake. The state park features relaxed and quiet campsites surrounded by picnic sites, bicycle trails, and self-guided walking trails. Some of the neighboring cities include Ashdown and Magnolia.
