Devil’s Den State Park, Arkansas

We had a great weekend at Devil’s Den. I had previously visited the Park with a group from Troop 15; we intended to hike the Butterfield Trail, but instead ended up day hiking.

Raegan and Erin and I had one of the park Cabins for the weekend. It was a very nice one-bedroom that has a small pullout sofa bed. The cabin has a nice kitchen with a full stove, a microwave, and a full refrigerator. There is a complete set of cooking stuff (pots, pans, utensils, plates, etc.). We only used it for making hot tea.

The cabin has Direct-TV, and a phone, but there isn’t any internet (there is decent wifi at the cafe area). The cabin has a nice sitting area outside (with a charcoal or wood grill). Water pressure and quantity was great.

There are plenty of places to walk around, and trails, and a nice river with a small lake. We really like this place. We will go back.

She could get a couple bars of EDGE on her iPhone 4s from there.

We saw five (living!) armadillos around the cabin Sunday morning. We also saw a small fox while driving through the Park.

This place is amazing for beauty. We will return, and this time we will bring food to cook at the cabin for dinner (the breakfast and lunch convenience of the cafe is too great to pass up).

    I loved loved loved Devil’s Den. The cold front had come through and it was so pleasantly cool. Loved the immensely tall trees, the rocks, the moss, the river and waterfalls, the little trickling streams, various birds and critters, the CCC buildings, and the utter peace of it all. That was an adorable cabin, and I want to go back!
