This park preserves the site of historic Davidsonville. Established in 1815, the town included the Arkansas Territory’s first post office, courthouse and land office. Bypassed by the Southwest Trail, an overland route from St. Louis to the border of Mexico, the town faded by the 1830s. Today, archeologists are uncovering remarkable finds of streets, foundations and objects that tell a fascinating story of life on the Arkansas frontier following the Louisiana Purchase. Park exhibits and interpretive tours provide information about this important frontier town.
The park borders the Black River (boat launch ramp) and a 12-acre fishing lake (no launch ramp) offering a barrier-free fishing pier, fishing boats (trolling motors only), pedal boats and canoes.
