In this scenic setting in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountain, Lake Greeson, the Little Missouri River, and Daisy State Park make a winning combination for outdoor enthusiasts. Lake Greeson, 7,000 acres of clear water and mountain scenery, delights water enthusiasts. Catches of black and white bass, stripers, crappie, catfish, and bluegill account for its popularity with anglers.

The Little Missouri joins four other popular float streams that offer challenging spring and early summer trout fishing.

Situated on Lake Greeson's shore, Daisy State Park is the perfect camp for enjoying this area's many outdoor recreational opportunities.

Park facilities include 103 campsites (26 Class A, 56 Class B, and 21 Tent sites); picnic areas, a standard pavilion (screened) with restrooms, launch ramps, hiking trails, a playground, and a motorcycle/mountain bike/ATV trail.

History of the Area
Located in Kirby, Arkansas, the park was established in 1957. It spans over 276 acres and includes Lake Greeson shoreline. The area is known for its outdoor activities including fishing and boating.

The land originally belonged to Native American tribes before European settlers arrived during America's westward expansion. In the early twentieth century, it became a popular site for mining quartz crystals.

In addition to recreational facilities like campsites and picnic areas, there are also historical sites within the park such as old mineshafts from its mining days.

Over time environmental conservation efforts have been implemented to preserve local flora & fauna while maintaining visitor accessibilities.

Park facilities include 103 campsites including Standard B, Premium D, Preferred B sites and Tent sites; picnic areas, a standard pavilion (screened) with restrooms, launch ramps, hiking trails, a playground, and a motorcycle/mountain bike/ATV trail.

Daisy State Park offers a designated swimming area on the shores of Lake Greeson for visitors to enjoy. No lifeguards are present, so swimming is at one's own risk. The clear lake waters provide refreshing relief from summer heat. Swimming amenities include a sandy beach and nearby picnic facilities for convenience.
Anglers can enjoy lake fishing, with options for bass, crappie, bream and catfish. Boat ramps are available for access.

Daisy State Park in Arkansas offers scenic picnic areas with tables and grills overlooking Lake Greeson. Shaded spots available.
While exploring the park on two wheels, it's important to be mindful of your surroundings and trail conditions. The Bear Creek Cycle Trail is available for cyclists seeking a scenic ride through nature; however, always check weather forecasts before embarking as trails can become hazardous in poor conditions. Ensure you have appropriate gear and water, especially during warmer months when dehydration risks increase.

Remember that wildlife encounters are possible so stay alert at all times. It's also wise to inform someone of your cycling plans if heading out alone. Helmets are strongly recommended for safety reasons-don't overlook their importance even on seemingly easy paths.

Lastly, respect other visitors by yielding appropriately and maintaining reasonable speeds-a cautious approach ensures everyone enjoys their experience responsibly within these natural settings.
All terrain vehicle (ATV) enthusiasts can enjoy the challenging 31-mile Bear Creek Motorcycle Trail on Lake Greeson. The trail begins at Daisy State Park (situated on the north shore of the lake) and travels east approximately 1.5 miles on park property, then changes to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lands and travels along the eastern shoreline of the lake to Laurel Creek Recreation Area. ATV's, mountain bikes, dirt bikes and hikers can utilize this multi-use trail that is open throughout the year. Trail maps are available at the Daisy State Park visitor center or the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers resource manager's office for Lake Greeson at Murfreesboro.

[NOTE: ATV's cannot be driven on roads within Daisy State Park; however, a parking lot with sufficient space for trailers is provided in the park at the trail head. As you enter the state park from U.S. 70, look for the first parking lot on the left just past the park entrance sign.]
