      Situated in the Lee Creek Valley in the Ozark Mountains, Devil's Den State Park is one of five state parks built in Arkansas in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. As well as constructing roads and trails through the woods and a dam in the creek (creating the eight-acre Lake Devil), the CCC also built 17 cabins using local wood and stone. These historic, rustic and extremely characterful buildings have all now been equipped with a/c, heating, modern kitchens, bathrooms etc and are available all year around.

      If you go:
      Activities include hiking, mountain biking, horse riding. The park is also the site of a unique concentration of sandstone crevices and caves, the largest in the USA. However, many of these are now closed to the public in order to protect bats from the spread of the lethal White-nose Syndrome.
