This park was very poorly maintained. There was trash strewn all around my campsite and no trash receptacles in the area. Finally found a single dumpster. The comfort station was roped off with debris all around the side. Unimproved campsites with rundown tables and grills....More

I've been going to Chicot since 1962. I love the vastness of it, the many trees and you can pick a campsite based on total privacy or sites closer together for family gatherings. The only drawback to Chicot is that they have made their sites...More

We went camping at Chicot State Park for Easter. We had a nice campsite, it was large. We went over to the Arboretum and walked around. It was nice.
