​ The staff of Davidsonville Historic State Park are excited to announce Davidsonville has been honored as the Park of the Year for Region 2 of Arkansas State Parks. The wider region consists of eleven parks including Bull Shoals-White River State Park, Mammoth Spring State Park, Woolly Hollow State Park, Lake Charles State Park, Powhatan Historic State Park, Jacksonport State Park, Lower White River Museum, Pinnacle Mountain State Park, Toltec Mounds State Park, Plantation Agriculture State Park, and Davidsonville Historic State Park. 

​Over the course of the 2019 fiscal year the park overcame staffing shortages while always putting the park visitors as their top priority. “The staff at Davidsonville Historic State Park work as a team to ensure all visitors and campers have great, memorable experiences and enjoy all this little historical park has to offer. Whatever project, special event, program, or work detail being worked on, the park team unites to accomplish what is set before them,” Davidsonville Superintendent Kendra Harris says. “This team, my work family, are wonderful hardworking people who care deeply for the natural resources, history, and guests of Davidsonville.”

​A combination of 439 educational programs offered by the park interpreter, 99,674 guests made welcome by visitor center staff, daily grounds and facility upkeep by the best maintenance staff this side of the state, and a celebration of the bicentennial of the founding of Arkansas Territory added up to win Davidsonville the Park of the Year Award for its region. The Davidsonville Staff would like to thank the community for their constant support of the park.
