“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.

This park is gorgeous! Lots of hiking trails for all levels. Pretty lake/creek flowing through camping areas. Has a pool that was not open when we were here, but it looked clean. The park store/restaurant burned at some point, so it is closed while being rebuilt - not sure how long that will be, so bring your provisions. Fayetteville, AR is only about a 35 minute drive and fun town with lots going on (home of U of Arkansas). West Fork is closer by about 15 minutes if you need groceries. Supposedly there is a grocery store there but we never checked.

A few things to be aware of:

1. DO NOT TAKE HWY 74 (EXIT 49) INTO THE PARK IF YOU ARE A LARGE RIG OR TOWING. IT IS VERY STEEP AND SOME HAIRPIN CURVES THAT YOU COULD NOT NAVIGATE! IF IN DOUBT, CALL THE PARK AND THEY WILL TELL YOU IF HWY 170 IS A BETTER ROUTE BASED ON YOUR RIG SIZE., BUT IT MOST LIKELY WILL BE FOR MOST RIGS!

DO KEEP GOING TO HWY 170 (EXIT 53) AND TAKE THAT ROAD TO THE PARK.

2. OFF OF 170, GO DIRECTLY TO YOUR SITE AND THEN TAKE YOUR CAR TO THE VISITOR'S CENTER TO CHECK IN. NAVIGATING A BIG RIG THROUGH THE VISITOR CENTER AREA IS NOT POSSIBLE. AS YOU ARE COMING ON 170, WATCH CLOSELY FOR YOUR CAMPGROUND AREA (I.E., SECTION E, SECTION D, ETC.) IF YOU MISS YOUR TURN NAVIGATING A TURN AROUND WILL BE NEAR IMPOSSIBLE.

3. We had no satellite reception or local channels on DISH.
4. We had no cell phone reception on either Verizon or ATT.
5. The park has Wi-Fi, but is spotty.

All of that said, if you can live without your technology, this park is great for relaxing and exploring. The caves are closed due to the White Nose Syndrome, but the hikes are fun anyway.

They have a lot of ranger led activities for kids. We had full hookups for our 40' MH in section E. Our site was fairly level and many others appeared to be as well. Quiet during the week, but fills up on weekends. Best to get a reservation.

Only used the bathrooms once, but they appeared to be clean, did not use showers.

We would definitely come back.

Nice quiet park. We loved that you could walk to the river from our campsite. The sound of the river and waterfalls made for a nice weekend getaway. There is NO cell service at all. There is free WiFi at the visitor center. One of our favorite places to camp so far!

This is a wooded campground surrounded by streams and hiking trails! Spaces are generous and include a tent pad! Lots of green space for dogs a d super clean restrooms.
Fire-pits and grills at our site, plenty of trash receptacles.
Lots to do and experience in the park!
Be ready for no cell signal or WiFi. We were making arrangements to go to a funeral so we were able to get on free WiFi at the visitors center.
Narrow winding roads to get here, but spots are generous!

This park has it all. Miles of trails. You can hike or mountain bike. The bathrooms are clean and there is hot water. I wish there was more signs on the trail so make sure you get a map at the visitor center. We only stayed 2 nights so we plan. To come back. I was talking to someone and the cabins are great too.

This a pretty campground which is down in a valley. The drive down in and the drive out is quite hilly and curvy. The site was spacious with a paved pad which was relatively level. The sites have good spacing between them but there no privacy offered. There's a creek behind the campsite which can be heard. We were unable to receive any TV channels, there was no verizon coverage and we had difficulty receiving the NOAA weather radio channels.
