Devil's Den State Park is located 13 miles west of Winslow, Arkansas off State Route 74 in a steep, rugged valley of the Ozark Mountains. Lee Creek flows through the park and is impounded y a small dam built by Dam at Devil's Den State Park - Photo by Norman W. Hildrumthe Civilian Conservation Corps during the mid-1930's. The park has many striking and unusual natural features (Devil's Den Cave, Devil's Ice Box, and Twin Falls to name a few) and is a popular destination for thousands of visitors. Because of these unique features, Devil's Den as selected in 1933 as one of Arkansas' first state parks.

The campground has 75 sites and is well suited for smaller RV's and Tents. Larger units (over 26 feet) may have some problems negotiating the steep roads and tight turns along SR 74 and within the park itself.

We camped in Area C and had a heavily wooded site with electric and water hook-ups. Our cost was $13.50 per night (11/99).

One of the major activities in this 2000 plus acre park is hiking. The park offers more than 20 miles of hiking trails and an equal amount of horse and mountain bike trails. Interpretative guides to the many trails are available at the Visitor Center. For more information, contact the Park at 501-761-3325.
