History of the Area
Located in Arkansas, this park was established in 1963. It's named after Richard Withrow, an early settler to the area. The springs were once believed to have healing properties and attracted many visitors during the late 19th century.

In addition to its natural beauty, it also holds historical significance with War Eagle Mill within its boundaries - a site from Civil War times that still operates today as a working grist mill.
The park's campground now features 30 new campsites. Nestled in shaded woods, the new camping area offers 30 Premium A campsites with water, electric (up to 50 amp service), and sewer hookups.Each campsite can accommodate either an RV and/or a tent. This camping area also features a new barrier-free bathhouse.

The park's campsite choices also include 17 Standard B sites with water and electric hookups.

Swimming is available in the spring-fed pool at Withrow Springs State Park during summer months. Lifeguards are on duty.
Visitors can enjoy fishing in the clear waters of War Eagle Creek, known for smallmouth bass and catfish. Rainbow trout are stocked seasonally, offering additional angling opportunities. Fishing is accessible from both banks or by wading.
