I’m sure I’ve talked about Lake Ft. Smith State Park here before. About 6 years ago the original park was closed to make way for a larger lake to supply Fort Smith with more water. Arkansas State Parks and the City of Fort Smith have been working to reopen the park in a new location. The park is now about 9 miles north of Mountainburg, Arkansas on highway 71.
Next to the new Visitor Center is a state of the art pool. Perfect for a hot summer day.
The day use area on the shores of Lake Fort Smith include covered picnic tables a playground bathrooms and a pavilion.The park currently has 30 state of the art campsites and a Group Lodge that sleeps 32. Cabins and a dining hall are in the plans.
