Kayaking is a great way to explore Lake Ouachita, Arkansas’s
largest lake. Lake Ouachita State Park is now taking reservations for their
upcoming Kayak Campout Adventures. The dates for these overnight camping trips
are October 8- 9 and 15- 16.
The adventures are designed for everyone regardless of kayaking experience.
can bring your own kayak and camping gear or rent what you need from the park.
A support boat with a restroom will be available to assist with gear and will
stay with the group throughout the trip. The park provides lunch and dinner on
Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.
Plans are to paddle around five hours each
day at a comfortable pace with plenty of breaks. Park interpreters will
demonstrate skills such as choosing a campsite, building a fire, setting up
camp, outdoor cooking and more. After setting up camp on one of Lake Ouachita’s
numerous islands, participants will take a sunset barge cruise and enjoy
evening programs by the park interpreters. Cost is $85 per person and kayak
rentals are available for $40 and camping gear for $15. To register for this
event, or for more information, contact Susan Adkins at Lake Ouachita State
