Fishing on Lake Chicot
Fishing on Lake Chicot

Anglers, we’ve found your paradise. Lake Chicot is situated in the far Southeast corner of Arkansas. The 20-mile oxbow lake is a former tributary of the Mississippi River that is heralded as Arkansas’s largest natural lake, and North America’s largest oxbow lake. All that acreage makes for world-class fishing on Lake Chicot! With its position along the Mississippi River, Lake Chicot State Park is a great spot for birdwatching.

An Un-Furr-getable Stay

If a cabin isn’t quite your style, plan a few nights at the newly opened Furr House Bed and Breakfast in Arkansas City. With its close proximity to Cane Creek State Park, the Arkansas River and Kate Adams Lake, it’s a great choice for those wanting to access the outdoors in the Lower Delta.
