What is there to do?

Who loves the great outdoors? We certainly do - it's much better than sitting inside playing on computers, right?

Why not head out to Devil's Den State Park in Arkansas, nestled in the stunning Ozark Mountains. It's an amazing part of the USA, and is filled with fun adventure waiting to be enjoyed!

In fact, Devil's Den State Park is actually an Arkansas icon, and considered a historic treasure that has been giving families great memories for decades!

The park also connects you to Lee Creek Valley and the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps (the CCC). This is where the history comes into it! Devil's Den was upgraded in the 1930s by the CCC and are now one of the most popular parks to visit. They used native materials to actually craft the wood and stone structures that you will see when you visit.

In the heart of hte park is the 8 acre Lake Devil, where you can rent canoes and pedal boats and have an adventure out on the water!

If you're more into dry land, then Devil's Den has what you need. There are plenty of hiking, mountain bike and backpacking trails that lead right into the backcountry areas of the park. 

The park also features cabins and camp sites if you want to extend your day out a bit more, as well as a swimming pool and cafe as the icing on the cake!

So grab those walking shoes and bring along that sense of adventure, because Devil's Den State Park is waiting for YOU!
