Welcome to Lake Catherine State Park
Nestled in the natural beauty of the Ouachita Mountains on 1,940-acre Lake Catherine, one of the five popular Diamond Lakes in west central Arkansas, Lake Catherine State Park features many CCC/Rustic-style facilities constructed of native stone and wood by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. Situated along the lakeshore, the park's 20 cabins feature fully-equipped kitchens. All but one feature one-bedroom. Most have wood-burning fireplaces.  The park's two-bedroom cabin, the Polly Crews Cabin, was designed to be fully-accessible to serve the needs of visitors with disabilities. The cabin also includes its own private and fully-accessible fishing pier and boat dock. This 1,160-square-foot cabin which opened in 2004 features a design inspired by the rustic architectural designs of the park's five, historic CCC-built cabins. An accessible parking space and path provide barrier-free access to the cabin. The bathroom offers both a spa tub and a roll-in shower. Just outside the cabin's screened porch is a large flagstone patio overlooking the lake. The pation includes a picnic table and pedestal grill. Sixty-eight campsites and two Rent-A-Camp sites offer lake views and woodland views. Two of the park's campgrounds underwent recent total renovations. Improvements encompassed 32 campsites in Camping Area “C,” an area that stretches along the shore of Lake Catherine and includes many lakeside sites. In Camping Area “A,” located on a hillside nearby, a total of 12 campsites were renovated. Campground improvements include new roads, utility distribution systems and the parking pads and utilities at each campsite. Most of the parking pads are now 60 feet long or longer. Classified as Class AAA sites, each one is a pull-in or back-in campsite featuring water and sewer hookups plus combined electrical for 20 amp, 30 amp, and 50 amp connections. Each site includes a picnic table, grill, lantern hanger and tent pad. Additional vehicle parking is scattered throughout the camping areas. Campground improvements include two barrier-free campsites that are located adjacent to the two existing bathhouses. Both bathhouses now offer barrier-free access for visitors with disabilities.
