Overview

Overview

Natural Features:

The Wilbur D. Mills Dam is on the main stem of the Arkansas River, just below the Arkansas Post Canal.

Birders love coming to the region in spring and fall to see millions of migratory birds en route for warmer waters.

Recreation:

Hiking, fishing and boating are all popular pastimes. World-class bass and crappie fishing is found in Pool 2, the section of the canal between Pendleton Bend and Lock Number 2.

Facilities:

Electric and water hookups are available at each of the 21 campsites, 17 of which can be reserved. Hot showers and a boat launch are also available.

Nearby Attractions:

The Arkansas Post National Memorial marks where the first European village west of the Mississippi River was built in 1686. Arkansas Post was also the capital of Arkansas up until the Civil War.

The White River National Wildlife Refuge is also worth exploring.
