Welcome to Lake Frierson State Park
Atop the unique landform of rolling hills called Crowley's Ridge, this park on the shore of 335-acre Lake Frierson is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the year-round fishing for bream, catfish, crappie, saugeye, and bass. The park's natural beauty is enhanced each spring when wild dogwoods bloom throughout the park. Park facilities include campsites [four Class C with water and electric hookups, and three Class D (no hookups)] with tables and grills, restrooms, picnic sites, an enclosed climate-controlled pavilion, playground, self-guided trail, launch ramp, barrier-free fishing pier, and visitor center with interpretive exhibits. The park also offers rental fishing boats, kayaks, and pedal boats. The park is 10 miles north of Jonesboro on Ark. 141.
