Millwood Lake

Attractions - Millwood State Park offers one of the South's hottest fishing areas on 29,500-acre Millwood Lake. A series of boat lanes lead anglers among timber to marshes and oxbow cutoffs, making Millwood Lake a "tree-filled" fishing paradise.

Recreation - Millwood State Park is famous for its bass tournaments since the lake abounds in largemouth and white bass. Spring and fall offer some of Arkansas's best crappie fishing. Summer provides easy catches of catfish and bream. Bird watching is popular with a wintering bald eagle population, flocks of migrating pelicans and ducks in the fall, and a variety of year-round inhabitants. Visitors will also enjoy camping, picnicking, hiking, and a biking trail.
