Devil's Den State Park

Anyone been to Devil's Den State Park in Arkansas? Any steep grades to get to it? Any other comments about this Park appreciated.

No, we have not, but that is one that is on our list. We like to visit Arkansas.

I havent been to Devils Den, but have friends up there that want us to meet them at Camp Ground. I have read on this site that you need to go in on the long way route due to roads. Search this site for more info. Have fun

Try to come in on 170, 74 has some pretty good switchbacks and we would not come in that way with our 24 ft trailer, campsites are easy in, the trails are great as well, we love it there!

Would be coming in from Louisiana, may not be able to come in on 170. Is there grades on Hwy 74, will be in a class C MH.

Thanks to all for your replies.

The southern entrance has a lot of switchbacks and is steep and narrow. I would NOT take it towing anything more than a short popup. It's worth it to come in on 170, and you'll eve see signs warning not to take Devils Den Rd off of 540 with a trailer.
It's a fabulous park though, we'll worth the visit!

The hwy 170 exit is just up the interstate from the hwy 74 exit. Just adds 30 min. Driving time at the most. Camp there a least 3 times a year. We will be camping there in 2 wks

Thanks Texasblue and Joe Mc, Hwy 170 it is. Sounds like that is the way to avoid steep grades and switchbacks. Any recommended sites once your there?
