I've been to an assortment of places and this one is really nice. Usually quiet, very pretty, and for te most part clean. I like the camp grounds and they have many activities. I love to rent bikes when I'm there, for the most part there isn't to much traffic and you can easily ride in the road. The cabins... More

Kaitilin, Thanks for staying with us. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I want you to know I keep a record of comments and make request according to what visitors like and/or don’t like so your opinion does matter to me. I often hear great things about the cabins, camping, cleanliness, and grounds but not everyone gives us insight... More

I have visited over half of the state parks in Arkansas, and this is one of my favorites. It is a small quiet park that is full of charm. We enjoyed the interpreter activities immensely. The boat ride among the cypress trees was both interesting and breathtaking. The cabins are pricey, but they are newer and some of the nicest... More

I grew up in El Dorado and a big treat for us was to go to Moro Bay and cross the river by ferry to reach the park. The ferry is no longer in service as you can access the park by highway now. But the ferry is on exhibit and is very interesting especially for the kids. There are... More

I'm giving a mixed review based upon a couple of experiences so far. The first visit, a friend and I rented a cabin and we had the entire place to ourselves. It was lovely, peaceful and beautiful. The second visit, our family camped and kayaked the bay. Upon arrival, our campsite was occupied by a vehicle. The owner was boating... More

We have visited Moro Bay State Park by boat several times from Monroe, Louisiana. The 100 mile trip by boat up the beautiful Ouachita river is great in the fall with lots of sandy beaches to stop and rest and picnic. Going through the lock and dam system of the river is a great experience!

My husband and I took our kids this past weekend. They had a blast!! Very affordable. Cabins were so nice. Clean/Neat. It was a nice and quiet weekend get away. No over crowding! That is a plus. This is the first time I have gone to a park that was so quiet!!!

We spent last Easter weekend at Moro Bay State Park. We were blown away by the two cabins we rented. They were each two-bedrooms with a living-dining space and a screened porch with table and chairs. I'm a little leery about placing this review on a public site because the local folks may have trouble renting them when others discover... More

My wife, two boys and I stayed from March 11 through March 16 in RV spot number 10. This spot is the biggest spot, and in my opinion, the best spot in the park. But after looking at all of them, they are all great spots. All sites are paved and level. The rest of the spot is gravel. Each... More

Great get away in south Arkansas on Ouachita river. Good fishing and beautiful sand bars for laying in the sun.
