Eagles, Marble Falls, Standing Rock, Levee Tour-Lake Chicot State Park
The art of falconry dates back about 3000 years, and is still common today. At DeGray Lake Resort State Park, public falconry hunts are incorporated with the eagle outings. Marble Falls – once a part of Dogpatch USA—is a spring-fed waterfall, providing a year-round flow and is visible from Scenic Byway 7, along with the town of Marble Falls. Standing Rock is what’s left of a massive rock formation in the Ouachita National Forest south of Mena. Driving along the Mississippi River levee at Lake Chicot State Park, provides a wonderful opportunity to experience the history, wildlife and culture of the area.
