There's snap in the air, it's getting light a little later and dark a little earlier. Your eye turns to the black gum, hickory and red maples looking for that first hint of color, that splash that makes you stare at a tree for hours that you wouldn't give a second thought to in the middle of summer. Fall in Arkansas is coming. Arkansas State Park campgrounds will be filled with the wood soaked scented air of campfires, coffee and hot chocolate. The cabin fireplaces are ready for cool romantic nights. Enjoy those crisp, special nights when the clouds part and your canopy is filled with stars.
Cedar Falls Even if you can't get out for an overnight trip take a day, take a hike, take a trip into history, take some time for yourself, take your family and enjoy all that Arkansas State Parks has to offer.

Visit the Calendar of Events and make your plans, make your reservations and make some memories. We are getting into the final months of our year long 75th anniversary celebration. Come celebrate with us.Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking in Arkansas is awesome in the winter and to prepare we are opening the Fern Hollow Mountain Bike Trail on Saturday, October 25th at White Oak Lake State Park. Enjoy 9.5 miles of sweet singletrack in the rolling timberlands of southern Arkansas.

Watch the American Beech and Sugar Maple Trees change color at Village Creek State Park near Wynne, AR. Be amazed by the panoramic view of fall color from atop Rich Mountain at Queen Wilhelmina State Park near Mena, AR. Be immersed in color on a hike on the Hidden Diversity Trail at Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area near Rogers, AR. Join us and enjoy some of the best fall color in the country.

Would you like to enjoy a safe, family friendly Halloween this year? We have you covered. Here is a link to some of the Halloween events planned in Arkansas State Parks this year. Everything from carnivals, hay rides and storytelling to ghosts, goblins and night hikes await you.

Just so the cool nights don't catch you unprepared go to the park store and pick up an official 75th anniversary performance fleece jacket. Available in men's and women's cut. Show your support for Arkansas State Parks. Remember the 75th anniversary product will only be available for a couple more months.
