General Info:
This park preserves the site of historic Davidsonville. Established in 1815, the town included the Arkansas Territory's first post office, courthouse, and land office. Bypassed by the Southwest Trail, an overland route from St. Louis to the border of Mexico, the town faded by the 1830s. Archeological excavations here are uncovering remarkable finds of streets, foundations, and objects that tell a fascinating story of life on the Arkansas frontier following the Louisiana Purchase. Park exhibits and interpretive tours provide information about this important frontier town.Fishing is a major activity here today. The park borders the Black River (boat launch ramp) and a 12-acre fishing lake (no launch ramp) with barrier-free fishing pier. Anglers can also choose from the nearby Spring and Eleven Point rivers. Rental fishing boats (trolling motors only), pedal boats, canoes, and kayaks are available in the park.Facilities include 49 campsites (one Class A, 23 Class B and 25 Tent Sites), picnic areas, two standard pavilions (screened), playgrounds, four hiking trails including a self-guided walking trail though the historic town site, and a visitor center with exhibits and a gift shop.From Pocahontas, travel two miles west on U.S. 62, then go nine miles south on Ark. 166. Or from Black Rock, take U.S. 63 to Ark. 361, then go six miles north.
