Cane Creek State Park in Lincoln County opened. This southeast Arkansas park occupies an environmentally significant setting on the border of two of the state’s geographic regions, the flat Mississippi Alluvial Plain (the Delta) and the rolling West Gulf Coastal Plain. Located on the shore of Cane Creek Lake, the park offers recreational activities that include camping, picnicking, fishing, kayaking, hiking, and wildlife watching. Most of the lake is heavily timbered. Sport fish inhabiting the lake include largemouth bass, channel catfish, crappie, bluegill, and redear sunfish. Fauna on Cane Creek Lake and Bayou Bartholomew include alligators and ospreys, and bald eagles are sometimes seen in winter. A mature oak, pine, and hickory forest covers ninety percent of the park.
