Village Creek State Park RV & Campground Guide

Arkansas

Village Creek State Park

sits on almost 7,000 acres of forests and streams, creating a unique environment in Arkansas. Visitors can hike or view the forested trails from atop a horse - the park even has an equestrian campground, along with an Andy Dye-designed 27-hole championship golf course. And the views of foliage during the fall are just as spectacular as you might imagine. 

One of the park trails includes a segment of the Trail of Tears, and is a good way to get out and explore with kids while also helping them learn about the history of the country. Finally, spend part of your time along one of the two lakes, visit the small museum, and pop in to the visitor center where volunteers can help you plan your trip. The weather ranges from just below freezing in the coldest month to the low 90’s in the summer.
