Millwood State Park is a state park in the northwest corner of Arkansas, United States. The park consists of 1,068 acres (430ha) situated along Jernigan Lake and offers camping facilities as well as opportunities for fishing, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, boating, water skiing, picnicking, and wildlife viewing. It also has two playgrounds.
The park’s lake features bass, crappie, bream, catfish, perch, sunfish, and trout; it is noted for its largemouth bass population. Fishing tournaments are held during summer months.
There is a campground with full hookups, equestrian campsites, primitive campsite, yurts, cabins, camper services building, group lodge, bathhouse, picnic areas, playgrounds, volleyball court, and fire ring. Hiking and mountain bike trails meander through wooded terrain and pass through wetlands, prairie, and hardwood forests.
A mountain bike trail begins just outside the park boundary and extends into neighboring Ozark National Forest.
In 1957, the area was designated as a National Recreation Area, which helped to secure funding for improvements at the site. Millwood State Park was created in 1975 when an additional 369 acres were donated by former U.S. Senator David Hampton Pryor.
