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

If you're looking for an enjoyable get-a-way in a small quiet area, this is the perfect state park. Since I'm not a "camper", I stayed in the cabins. They were amazing. Spacious, clean and well-furnished. The grounds were beautifully maintained and clean. Woke up each morning to the sounds of birds chirping, woodpeckers, ducks, cranes and squirrels. Enjoyed breakfast with... More
