First Day Hike

For those looking to start a New Year’s Resolution on the right foot, we invite you to join the park interpreter January 1st, from 2-4pm for the annual First Day Hike. This year features an exploration of the park’s 2011 land addition. Lower river levels and bare trees will provide unique views of the park that few visitors get to enjoy during warmer months. After the hike, stick around and enjoy some hot cider or hot chocolate by the fire and make some memories with your fellow park enthusiasts.

For more information about this event, please call the park 870-892-4708 or stop by and visit us. Davidsonville is located on Arkansas Highway 166 South, 15 minutes from Pocahontas. The park staff wishes you all happy holidays and hope to see you out at your local state park soon.

Black River Expedition

Need to get outside and away from the holiday crowds for a bit? Davidsonville is the place to be. The Early Arkansas Reenactors Association launch their 2016 Black River Expedition from the Davidsonville Boat Launch at 8am on December 27th. Join the park interpreter and learn how Arkansans during the 1800s traveled on the river before the Keelboat Aux Arc starts its journey downriver.

Fireside Friday

Join us around the fire on November 18th from 2-4 for S’mores and hot chocolate.  Our park interpreter will talk about how wildlife keeps warm during the winter months.  This is a free event and be sure to dress accordingly.
