What to know
Atop the forested hills in Northeast Arkansas, Crowley’s Ridge State Park is situated on a unique geological formation and has a rich history. Native log and stone structures, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, set the tone for this park’s rustic quality. Facilities include five bunk cabins for group lodging, four duplex cabins with kitchens and fireplaces, one rustic cabin with kitchen, 26 campsites (18 Class B and eight tent sites), picnic areas, hiking trails, pavilions, a 31-acre fishing lake, and 3.5-acre swimming area. The park offers fishing boat, kayak, and pedal boat rentals. From Paragould, the park is nine miles west on U.S. 412, then two miles south on Hwy. 168.
