DeGray Lake, AR, on the Caddo River, is known for its camping facilities and geological formations. Located in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains, lake visitors can enjoy boating, fishing, swimming and scuba diving as well. A group camp area, which includes a dining hall and eight sleep shelters, is also available. The project offers a visitor center and an excellent State park that has a lodge, marina, golf course and campground.
Boating, water skiing, kayaking and other water sports are the biggest draw to the lake, and a boat ramp and sandy swimming beach are provided. The lake is also stocked with a variety of game fish, including plenty of hybrid striped bass, making it an ideal area for both boat and bank fishing. Numerous hiking and horseback riding trails wind around the lake shore.

Great area to camp; beautiful campsites, even in the woods. Short and interesting trails to hike around the park including one that follows where the old railroad went through. Also a bird watching area. Quiet, especially lovely when the fall leaves are on--we camped in November.

Great state park. Very comprehensive. Lots of park-sponsored activities. We have gone on night prowls, learned about snakes, astronomy, taken sunset cruises, learned to kayak and taken Geocaching 101 (the only thing that we paid for was the sunset cruise to offset the high price of gas). Campgrounds very nice, lodge is amazing and the restaurant is very good. We have stayed both in the lodge and at the campground. We even went one fall to the Civil War re-enactment. Very clean water in the lake, love to swim here. A family favorite! If you stay in the campground in the woods the most amazing firefly nighttime show, like looking at Christmas lights twinkling. Lakefront campsites are also very nice. Two thumbs up!
