Arkansas State Park Calendar of Events

Are you looking for fun activities to do while visiting an Arkansas State Park? Our park interpreters routinely schedule culture, history, environmental and outdoor education programs designed to help you have a more meaningful park experience and make memories of a lifetime.

We offer more than 50,000 family-friendly programs and events each year, including lake tours on park tour boats, guided hikes in the wilderness, animal sightings, birding adventures, kayak tours, living history demonstrations, nature games, fall foliage programs, historic site tours, bald eagle watches, spring wildflower walks, campfires, outdoor skills workshops, and much more — there’s something going on all the time.

This is the place to find great outdoor education programs that fit your schedule, whether you’re bringing your children or a classroom full of students. You can customize your search by date, park location, city, zip code, and keyword (such as "kayak", "archaeology", "birding", or "day camp").
