I have been here several times. I have camped here, and I have stayed in the lodge. I love the little golf course they have here. It is fun to play, and has beautiful scenery. There is boating and fishing. The staff all over the park are friendly. The state of Arkansas does a good with this place.

We just got back from camping at Lake DeGray over the past few days. We have camped for over ten years and this is probably the best place we have ever stayed. Arkansas State Parks set the bar really high. We have stayed in State Parks in Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida and there are some wonderful parks. Arkansas State Parks... More

We love the entire park. We stayed in a campsite right on the lake. All the campsites are laid out very well, with a separate tent area. We stayed in a site with electricity and water for our small motorhome. The restrooms are the best I've ever seen in a campground. We hiked a nice trail while there. All this... More

Golf. Horseback riding. Hiking. Bird watching. More. And then when one is ready to rest there are plenty of rooms at the lodge and plenty of good RV spaces. And if one doesn't want to cook, one can't do better than the Shoreline Restaurant at the Lodge.

We camped at DeGray Lake over Thanksgiving and will return this year because it is beautiful clean and relaxing. The campsites are quiet, clean, nice views, and the showers/restrooms are above average for camping. We ate at the Lodge for Thanksgiving in the conference room buffet they have. It is awesome, 4 or 5 different meats, all the sides, and... More

Beautiful drive to get to the park. So much to do. We did the sunset lake boat ride...it was superb. You can rent bikes and bike ride through the park. It is pretty hilly but there are bikes for all ages. There is horseback riding...fishing...boating...tennis ...a lodge...soooo much to do. You can even rent rackets and balls to play tennis....
