Report: In researching an upcoming trip to Arkansas I came across the Moro State Park post and could not believe that there are no reviews by visitors to date. Permit me a few observations from my experience there some years ago. I visited it last in Oct of 1996 for a few days of camping and fishing. The place was virtually deserted, the bass were biting, and the place was laid back and easy going. The only reason I do not highly recommend Moro State Park is that it is one of those places best left undiscovered (at least I hope it has not been discovered) - like your favorite fishing hole. I'm returning to Arkansas in April 03 and hope to go back to this backwater oasis to find it just as I left it - a fisherman's paradise with no bells and whistles. For true sportsmen, this is as close to heaven as you can get without leaving earth and it's conveniently located right off a major highway to boot. Dont bother eating out. Grill your catch, pop a cold one, and enjoy lifes finer moments.
