Millwood State Park is located in southwest Arkansas near Ashdown (Little River County) on the shores of Millwood Lake. The 29,550-acre lake was created in 1966 when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed the longest earthen dam in Arkansas, stretching some 3.3 miles. In 1976, the Corps signed a lease with the state parks system leading to the creation of the state park. The lake, with its trademark standing timber, is well known for its excellent bass fishing.
