Lake Frierson, a 350-acre lake, is fast-gaining a reputation as one of the hottest fishing lakes in northeast Arkansas.
Built in the 1970s as a U.S. Soil Conservation Service project, the lake is now managed by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. The Game and Fish Commission stocks the lake, so good catches of bass, bream, channel catfish and crappie are guaranteed. The commission also owns the land bordering the western side of the lake and opens it to hunters during season.
Lake Frierson State Park is a 135-acre park located on the eastern shores of the lake. Facilities include seven Class B campsites with tables and grills, restrooms, picnic sites, a pavilion, a playground, a self-guided trail, boat rentals, a launch ramp, a barrier-free fishing pier and visitor center.
