Arkansas Park offers summer fun

Lake Charles State Park is 40 miles from Batesville, on Highway 25 near Powhatan in Lawrence County. The lake consists of 645 acres of spring-fed waters in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. The lake offers good catches of bass, crappie, bream and catfish, according to park officials and local fishermen.

Many people travel to the park to camp. Sixty campsites (23 Class AAA and 37 Class B) and one Rent-An-RV are available. Picnic sites, hiking trails, a pavilion, launch ramp, swimming beach and playground are within walking distance. The park also has a visitor center’s gift shop, which sells gift items, camping supplies and snacks.

The lake and park were instantly popular with visitors and remains popular today. Fishermen, campers and swimmers flock to the park throughout the year.

More than a dozen special events are scheduled yearly at the park, along with daily tours and programs. The park’s largest celebration is the Lakefest Sports Show and Festival, held on the weekend prior to Mother’s Day. Activities include music, contests, food booths, antique auto show, crafts, bass tournament and beauty pageants.
