“ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, & PEACEFUL!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

My kids and I decided to do a hike here to see the waterfall. When you get to the actual waterfall you'll know. We saw some smaller ones along the way and thought initially they were maybe it. Nope! It sure was pretty when we got to it. The trail was marked very well. We thought it was just beautiful and the park was very clean! We had a great time!

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

We went to Lake Catherine for our honeymoon...20 years later, we are still visiting this great park. The rustic cabins are very comfortable and cozy, especially in the winter when you can sit back and enjoy the fireplace. Fishing is ok, but kayaking is great! Trails are numerous and lead to beautful places, especially, the waterfall! The campground is updated, along with the bathhouses, which have always been clean.

“Pristine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

This is one of the many wonderful state parks in Arkansas. There is no day fee, and the hiking trails are well marked. If you only have time to take one hike, be sure that you chose one that passes the waterfalls.

“Some of the country's best camp sites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

The campsites at Lake Catherine are amazing - but if you want to go on a weekend make your reservations long in advance! These campgrounds book out well in advance. The lake is beautiful, and the sites are well maintained.
