“hiking & camping!”

Devil's Den State Park is an Arkansas icon--a beloved natural and historic treasure where over the decades park visitors have made memories to cherish a lifetime. Nestled deep in an Ozark valley, Devil's Den connects you to picturesque Lee Creek Valley and the craftsmanship and conservation legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the "Tree Army" of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. Devil's Den is the perfect blending together of nature and CCC-Rustic-style park architecture that mirrors its natural settings.When you experience a park like Devil's Den, you, too, will understand why these parks built in the 1930s by the CCC are among America's most popular park facilities. Devil's Den is a CCC masterpiece in a picturesque Ozark Valley. Lee Creek flows through the park, and the Ozark National Forest surrounds it.  This valley in the renowned Ozark Mountains, ancient sedimentary mountains renowned for their natural beauty and lush oak-hickory forest, was selected as a park site in the 1930s by the CCC. The men used native materials to craft the park’s rustic-style wood and stone structures. This work includes an impressive native stone dam that spans Lee Creek in the heart of the park forming peaceful, eight-acre Lake Devil. Rental canoes and pedal boats are available at the park.Hiking, backpacking, and mountain bike trails lead to backcountry areas in the park and the surrounding Ozark National Forest. Seventeen fully-equipped cabins featuring kitchens and fireplaces are nestled in the natural beauty of this park. These cabins are available throughout the year. Wood-burning fireplaces in the cabins are available seasonally.A park cafe and swimming pool (both open in summer only) overlook the lake. Groceries, gifts and snacks can be purchased at the park store.

I think just about everyone who goes to college and the University of Arkansas that goes outside will end up adventuring this place because it is so well known and talked about. A beautiful place to explore

I enjoyed spending an afternoon at Devil's Den State Park to do a little hiking and exploring. On this trip I hiked the Devil's Den Trail which climbs through the bluffs with many rock formations of interest along the trail. On the far end of the trail is Twin Falls which was just barely a trickle in early June. I thought that there would be a little more water coming down the falls being early in the season. It was an easy hike with a total distance of 1.5 miles. The trail is a loop so you do not have to repeat any trail which is always fun.

I went to the visitor center just as they were closing. The staff was very nice even at the end of their day and they had a number of gift items in addition to the displays.

I drove through a couple of the campground loops just to check them out, and it looks like you could have a great time camping here.

I will be coming back to explore the Yellow Rock trail for sure.
